The Key to Temperature Management

According to Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ),between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2017, FSANZ coordinated 626 recalls. The average number of recalls per year for the last 10 years is 63.

During the last 10 years, undeclared dairy (milk) has been the most common allergen related recall, accounting for 31% of all allergen related recalls. Peanut is the second most common type of allergen-related recalls, accounting for 20% in this category. Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella and E. coli are the three microorganisms most commonly associated with microbial food recalls in Australia. 

Dairy products are more commonly recalled due to concerns with process hygiene, indicated through E. coli testing, than other categories of food. Other products commonly recalled for E. coli include fresh sprouts, salads and some processed meat products.

How to prevent Airborne Contamination Issues


CAN THE RIGHT DOOR CAN BE THE SOLUTION TO AIRBORNE CONTAMINATION ISSUES?

Most food and beverage travel a long way from the paddock, orchard or field to plate and this makes contamination control a difficult and immensely important process. While the journey is long, the most crucial part of contamination control is in processing facilities and warehouses. The journey from the source to the first processing facility is quick and generally easy to control. Once the raw product reaches the processing facility though, it is manipulated and exposed, and then it is stored in a warehouse for what can be a very long time.

Rapid Roller Doors - The Key to Temperature Management

The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing estimated over 5 million food poisoning cases in Australia, some of which may have been caused by bacteria due to improper storage of the food products. In addition, The Australia Institute found that $5.2 billion worth of food is thrown out every year. Whilst Australians contribute to this through bulk purchasing of food, it can also be caused by poor cold chain management, which resulted in the food failing to achieve the ‘best before’ or ‘use by’ date.
