Mettler Toledo CI-Vision, a designer and implementer of machine vision inspection programs, has published a white paper that details the benefits that a vision inspection component can add to a food safety assurance program.
According to a recent AIB International report, 43 percent of food product recalls is due to package mislabeling. The FDA reports that mislabeling is a major food safety issue, as allergens and other potentially dangerous ingredients are omitted from labels.
As a way to safeguard against FDA recalls, as well as against potential liability suits, implementing a vision inspection system can provide the assurance that 100 percent of mislabeled products are detected before ever leaving the manufacturing floor.
Mettler Toledo CI-Vision is a division of Mettler Toledo, a global supplier of precision instruments with sales and service locations in 37 countries.
