Fritz Kriete, chair of the Food Industry Group at McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC, says these are five ways in which companies can protect themselves against food safety issues:
- Put food safety first. The company culture must revolve around it.
- Concentrate on internal communications.
- Hire accredited consultants.
- Don’t overlook supplied products.
- Label clearly.
When it comes to foodborne outbreaks, it’s a matter of taking classic prevention and preparation steps. Do everything you can to keep it from happening, but be ready just in case it does.
