Reduce Allergen Recall Risk Through Better Labeling and Management of Suppliers & Ingredients

Webinar and Live Demonstration

WESTMINSTER, Colo., Aug. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TraceGains, the leader in cloud-based supply chain risk and compliance management for food manufacturers and processors will be hosting a free webinar on August 15th, covering allergen and labeling risks generated by the supply chain.

Undeclared allergens are the leading cause of recalls. Under the FDA's recall authority and penalties, enhanced by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), acting quickly and effectively to remove products from distribution is critical. Developing plans in advance and engaging with suppliers and distributors is an important first step in developing an effective recall plan. FSMA also emphasizes notification of high risk foods, such as common allergens, on the label.

Breakthrough tools now also exist that allow companies to respond more rapidly in the event of a labeling error. A live demonstration will show how suppliers can be managed proactively to automatically reduce risk, increase compliance, and aid in rapid recalls when necessary.

Join us for a one-hour webinar where we discuss how your company can comply with allergen regulations and mitigate risk exposure from labeling errors.
Presenters at the event are Marc Sanchez, JD/M.S., Attorney & Regulatory Consultant, who will present on allergen regulations and labeling requirements, and Gary Nowacki, CEO of TraceGains, who will demonstrate how to proactively manage suppliers and ingredients for compliance.

Interested participants can register at The webinar will take place on Wednesday morning, August 15th, at 9:00 AM PDT (12:00 PM EDT).
