According to the World Allergy Organization, there are approximately 250 million people world-wide who suffer from food allergies which can often be fatal. In the past decade, no country has reported a decline in allergies. To the contrary, most countries have reported increases.
While many countries still do not have legislation requiring labeling for food products, in those that do, citizens rely on accurate information to stay healthy. That is why it is essential to make sure processing equipment, production lines and rinse water are clean and tested between runs.
