Prevent Product Recalls with Detectable Products

Last week, both ASDA and Waitrose had to issue product recalls due to plastic contamination in products. Foreign body contamination accounted for the fifth largest category of food safety incidents reported by the Food Standards Agency in 2015. These contamination incidents can lead to serious headaches for businesses.

Our range of detectable products are an effective solution to prevent contamination from plastic and rubber particles in food production lines. The BST  range of detectable products are manufactured from special polymers that contain magnetic properties. When used in conjunction with a metal detection or x-ray inspection system, the magnetic properties within these products highlight any foreign bodies within a product.J800 BST Pens
