Ensure consumer safety and limit product recalls
Mislabeled allergens threaten public health and can result in expensive and damaging recalls. Strict rules established by government agencies around the world require manufacturers to label and trace common allergens such as peanuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, and wheat. To ensure product safety and efficient recalls, manufacturers must be able to quickly identify and locate non-compliant products in the supply chain posing hazards to consumers. 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 and ensure they are clearly printed. Pattern-matching technology locates allergen labels on packages, bottles, and other items and verifies that they are correct to ensure customer safety and limit the chance for a product recall.
