Allergen Management and Traceability
Trace and track allergens and locate items quickly to limit recalls and prevent counterfeiting
Mislabeled allergens threaten public health and can result in expensive and damaging recalls. Strict rules established by the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) and agencies in other countries require manufacturers to label and trace common allergens. 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. Cognex tools verify product ingredients are labelled correctly, while track-and-trace solutions prevent packing mistakes and help locate recalled items quickly to minimize loss. Product verification and traceability solutions also prevent counterfeiting and unauthorized sales and distribution.
