SQF Risk Management: Allergen Management Program

Allergens continue to be a leading cause of FDA and USDA recalls, as well as trips to the doctor’s office for mild to life-threatening reactions from consumers.

SQF aims at minimizing allergen risk by requiring sites to identify all allergenic ingredients at receipt, stored separately from non-allergenic materials, and from materials containing other types of allergens. Additionally, staff involved in receiving and storage must be fully aware of the presence and risk of allergens and the storage procedure. 

Register today for SQF’s interactive course on how to implement a robust allergen management program to protect consumers, meet SQF Code, and prevent recalls. You will dive into:

  • commonly regulated food allergens
  • allergen hazards and controls
