2020 Clean Label Conference Presentation

Title: Clean Labels – Don’t Forget Your Chemical Hazards

Description: The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law on January 4, 2011. Simply stated, it enables the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to better protect public health by focusing on preventing food safety problems. FSMA identifies and calls out chemical contaminants including heavy metals, pesticides and drug residues and unapproved food and color additives. As the food industry strives to ensure its products meet all of consumers’ expectations, such chemical contaminants should not be overlooked. This presentation explores the vulnerability of products/ingredients to contaminants and presents a risk- based process for identifying potential hazards. It includes a review of current regulations around pesticides, heavy metals and other contaminants in food.
