Food manufacturers must protect the supply chain

Source of Article:

The nation-wide Salmonella outbreak has shaken consumers’ trust in the safety of the U.S. food supply chain, leading many to question food manufacturers’ quality control processes. In Food Technology’s latest ePerspective post, Steven Wilson examines what food manufacturers can do to address food safety issues. As Wilson states it has always been and will continue to be the responsibility of a firm’s management to oversee and guarantee the company’s adherence to food safety standards. Check out what Wilson has to say on the topic, and add your own two cents to the discussion. Should more of the burden fall on the FDA rather than the food manufacturers? Given the wide distribution of the tainted peanut products in the current outbreak, is there anything that food manufacturers such as Kellogg’s should have done differently?

Steven Wilson is the Chief Quality Officer at the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In addition he is Food Technologist and Consumer Safety Officer for the American Society for Quality. Wilson is a member of the Institute of Food Technologists.
