In the field of food safety, physical pollutants are the first and most important problem. If metal, bone, plastic, glass fragments or any other foreign matter are allowed to enter the food supply chain, serious damage may result. This is a major consideration for food manufacturers and X C Arm x-ray system supplier as they strive to ensure that pollution does not occur.
This is not just a matter of consumer health protection. Product recall due to physical pollution is also a great reputation risk. Food safety incidents will make national and international headlines. A widely spread accident may destroy a brand in a very short time. In addition, there are more specific financial impacts: product recalls caused by physical pollution may cost tens of millions of yuan. If the company is found to have violated health and safety regulations, it may face huge fines. In a word, physical pollution in food must be avoided at all costs. However, we are still surprised to see that the pollution situation is continuously increasing. Swiss Re’s report Globalized Food Safety1 shows that the number of products recalled in the United States in 2015 and the costs associated with these recalls have almost doubled since 2002.
More than half of the food recalls in the United States cost more than $10 million. Some companies have lost more than $100 million in direct costs. Moreover, according to a latest food recall strategy report released by Emerald Insight2, recalls usually trigger interlocking effects of the entire supply chain and industry ecology. The situation is similar in other major markets. Reports from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the Scottish Food Standards Agency (FSS) show that food safety incidents caused by foreign body pollution in the UK in 2016/173 increased by 7% compared with the previous year.
The increase in the frequency of such food safety incidents may be attributed to several main factors, in addition to a longer supply chain, a longer and more complex food production environment and more reporting methods. Obviously, the increase in the number of such accidents is definitely a trend that double column digital x ray system company and processors have to reverse.
How can the danger of physical pollutants in food be prevented?
With the continuous improvement of living standards, the quality and safety of people’s food and daily use of industrial products also have higher requirements, and the state has correspondingly formulated strict safety inspection regulations and laws. In order to better meet the relevant requirements and improve the detection level, the X-ray foreign body detector has also developed from the original single-view detection technology to a new multi-view detection technology, so as to provide more choices for customers with different needs.
With the penetration ability of X-ray foreign body detector, hard foreign bodies such as bones, plastics and various metal foreign bodies can be detected with higher sensitivity and stability, helping you to improve the quality of finished products more effectively. Not only can foreign matters in foods (such as various meat products, aquatic products, fruits and vegetables, additives, milk powder, chocolate, etc.) be detected, including metals, glass, ceramics, stones, bones, plastics, etc.; Can also identify product defects, such as packaging cracks, bubbles, content defects, etc.; Complete finished 30kw mobile x-ray device factory is realized. X-ray foreign body detector is widely used in food industry. The pharmaceutical industry; Textile industry, integrated circuit board and other industrial industries. Quality control in the food industry meets HACCP and IFS requirements to identify product defects, such as product breakage, product deformation or product missing, and eliminate potential product quality hazards.
