Allergen Label Inspection
Machine vision systems inspect food and beverage products to verify that allergens are correctly labeled.
Mislabeled allergens threaten the public’s health and cause expensive recalls deeply damaging to brand reputation and customer loyalty. Regulations both in the US and abroad require manufacturers to label and track common allergens such as peanuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, shell fish, tree nuts, and wheat. Products which contain or have come in contact with allergens must be clearly labeled for the consumer. Therefore, it is important for manufacturers to ensure the correct label is on the right package.
In-Sight vision systems inspect for the presence or absence of allergen labels, verify they are correct, and ensure they are clearly printed. The In-Sight 7000 with pattern-matching technology locates allergen labels on packages, bottles, and other items and verifies that they are correct.
