“The goal of the food safety professional should be to create a food safety culture, not a food safety program.” - Frank Yiannas
MFS-112 Allergens Control Management
Schedule and Hours
Food allergy (FA) is an important public health problem that affects adults and children and may be increasing in prevalence. Despite the risk of severe allergic reactions and even death, there is no current treatment for FA: the disease can only be managed by allergen avoidance or treatment of symptoms. Therefore, nowadays allergen is considered as food safety risk and need to be controlled and managed. Allergen management is required for FSSC 22000, based on the prerequisite program ISO/TS 22002-1 as stated at clause No. 7.2 in ISO 22000:2005 Standard.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to understand food allergen and intolerances, management of allergen risk and legislative and labelling requirements related to food allergen and intolerances and HACCP analysis for allergens.
