Are your allergen labels up to date and in compliance? How do you guard against allergen cross-contact in your plants? IDFA's newly revised Allergens Guidelines and Best Industry Practices for the dairy industry answers these questions and many more related to allergen labeling and in-plant management. A practical guide to managing allergens, the manual discusses how to set up an allergen-awareness program in plants and includes examples of best practices that will reduce the possibility of cross-contact. One updated section takes an in-depth look at the federal allergen labeling requirements that were mandated by the 2004 Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act and went into full effect in 2006. Another new section reviews the voluntary use of food allergy icons that can provide easily recognizable symbols in manufacturing plants and warehouses.
