Antibacterial Pen featuring SteriTouch┬«

Silver has been used for centuries for its natural sterilising properties. In recent years, this anitbacterial effect has been harnessed through the development of innovative carrier mechanisms, which enable the controlled release of silver ions, allowing silver to be incorporated into most materials without losing efficacy and without affecting the physical properties. Some of the bacteria and mould our pen protects against: Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, E.Coli, Salmonella, MRSA, Aspergillus niger, Aureobasidium pullulans, Penicillium funiculosum and Candida albicans.

Liability Insurance…Detectapro carries it, so you don’t need to worry.

One particular form of insurance coverage that should be evaluated by food product manufacturers and processors is food product liability insurance. Food product liability insurance provides protection in the event that the food product insured causes injury to the user, and it is much cheaper than you think.

Liability insurance should also be carried by the manufacturers of product being used on the production floor as well. All to often, business owners feel they do not need insurance until they really get the business off the ground. In fact, some never consider insurance coverage until someone they want to do business with requires it, a disaster strikes or they find themselves in a lawsuit. Any of them, whether it be a lost business deal, a disaster or a lawsuit is a terrible thing that nobody would want and that could be easily avoided just by getting a food product liability insurance.

Suppose a child gets sick from eating the potato salad served at lunch. It might be foreign object contamination or something else. Both your company and the manufacturer of the products used in the production of this food product should carry the insurance. Back to the illness caused by the potato salad. You could get a lot of problems there, and it is very likely that you eventually may have to pay a large amount of money if people decide to sue you because of the damage caused by your food product. Product liability insurance will protect you from any claim related to food you sell.

What could be better for the management and the businesses of your food company than having a good public image? Getting product liability insurance will help make your company look better by keeping it out of legal problems caused by any injury or damage caused by your products, and the best of all is that it will cost you much less than you think.

Use products that are metal detectable and you will save yourselves a lot of headache by reducing your risk of foreign object contamination and in turn face less of a risk of recall or serious law suits from injured consumers.

About 48 million people (1 in 6 Americans) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases, according to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is a significant public health burden that is largely preventable. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law by President Obama on Jan. 4, enables FDA to better protect public health by strengthening the food safety system. The FSMA builds a formal system of collaboration with other government agencies, both domestic and foreign. In doing so, the statute explicitly recognizes that all food safety agencies need to work together in an integrated way to achieve our public health goals. Building a new food safety system based on prevention will take time, and FDA is creating a process for getting this work done. Congress has established specific implementation dates in the legislation. The funding the Agency gets each year, which affects staffing and vital operations, will affect how quickly FDA can put this legislation into effect. FDA is committed to implementing the requirements through an open process with opportunity for input from all stakeholders. The following are examples of enhanced collaboration: State and local capacity building: FDA must develop and implement strategies to leverage and enhance the food safety and defense capacities of State and local agencies. The FSMA provides FDA with a new multi-year grant mechanism to facilitate investment in State capacity to more efficiently achieve national food safety goals. Foreign capacity building: The law directs FDA to develop a comprehensive plan to expand the capacity of foreign governments and their industries. One component of the plan is to address training of foreign governments and food producers on U.S. food safety requirements. Reliance on inspections by other agencies: FDA is explicitly authorized to rely on inspections of other Federal, State and local agencies to meet its increased inspection mandate for domestic facilities. The FSMA also allows FDA to enter into interagency agreements to leverage resources with respect to the inspection of seafood facilities, both domestic and foreign, as well as seafood imports. Additional partnerships are required to develop and implement a national agriculture and food defense strategy, to establish an integrated consortium of laboratory networks, and to improve foodborne illness surveillance.
