Development of a Robust Foreign Material Detection and Prevention Program
 

Presented by:
Robert Rogers, Senior Advisor for Food Safety & Regulation, Mettler-Toledo 

 

Taking place:

Friday, June 19, 2015 (03:00 PM - 04:00 PM UK Time).  This is a 10 a.m. Eastern Start.
 
Customer complaints and product recalls due to contamination from foreign material continue to be a common occurrence. There is no "silver bullet" when it comes to prevention and detection of foreign material. It is important to understand the various methods and what advantages and dis-advantages each method has. This presentation will provide information regarding various methods to control, detect and remove products that have been contaminated with foreign material.

winston: ALOT OF REVERB

Malconm: Hi! Malconm from Zimbabwe

gabriel: hello everybody. Hear you fine! Thank you again. Gabriel UK

Davide Crepaldi: Simon the images are blurry and I can't read the slides

Simon Timperley: Will be your connection Davide

Simon Timperley: Try watching on youtube.  Type IFSQN Youtube in google

Staci: Question about magnets: is there a required threshold for pull strength?

Yanuar Hendarto: the slides look good

ion] mauro: how can you validate the mgnets sistem?

Michelle: It's fine on my end.

derrion: Morning Team: #teamfoodsafety

Abha: what should be the required strength of magnet and what should be the frequency to check for deterioration of magnets

Staci: Abha, you should check your magnet strength during an annual calibration

The: How to calibrate the metal detector?

derrion: for my plant (coffee) we do quarterly checks - a pull strength check, and weekly checks to ensure that it is removing items...

mauro: Staci how can you calibrate the magnets?

Staci: Derrion, I'm in coffee too! :)

YOUSSEF: What about sources of foreign materials?

Abha: is there a specific strength of magnet to be efficient

Staci: Mauro, we have an external company  that comes out to test our pull strength. He compares to to our previous data points and charts the magnet life

derrion: staci we need to talk!........

enrique r: ceramic magnets are they a good alternative to rare earth magnets?

Yanuar Hendarto: foreign material from raw material or steel friction through the process

mauro: Staci I'm looking something to made at home

ion] sheetal: how do you do Metal detector test piece size validation?

Staci: There are pull tests you can buy if you want to do it yourself. It checks the pounds per square inch, if i'm not mistaken.

mauro: Sheetal there are some guide to choice the size (se Tesco guidelines for metal deterctor)

sheetal: Thanks mauro

Staci: Wouldn't that be nice.....

ANIBAL GRASSO: Hello, Anibal, From Uruguay is attending now

mauro: Sheetal search this Foreign Object DetectionUsing metal detectors to

ion] Pritam: What type of metal detector would you recommend for ice creams?

mauro: Sheetal als othis Basic Principles of Metal Detection

duygu: Hello Everybody, This is Duygu, from Turkey

JeffC: Hello

Cyril: HELLO

ANIBAL GRASSO: Presentation image is out of focus.

Raman: Hi

Gurpreet: why the sensors should not be tested without product.

Tessmania Chew: Is X-Ray Inspection Systems suitable for red meat plant as compared to metal detector unit?

mauro: can you suggest to us some guideline to validate the different system of detection (MD- X-ray - magnets)? thanks

Bria: For the challenge tests how would suggest performing the challenge if you aren't able to put the detector wand in a position that its in the middle of the detection window? Such as using package products. Would it not be ok to place the wand underneath the package.

Venice: how to set up the threshold of a metal detector?

Malconm: Do active mobile devices pose a risk of interference with a metal detector and X-ray? Is there a defined "safe" operating distance to not cause interference if mobile devices do cause interference?

ANA MARIA: hello from Quebec city, canada

oluyemi Arosoye: hello

Abha: for a freeze dried product, the metal detector is more suitable or an x-ray inspection system

oluyemi Arosoye: It is blurred. Kindly do somethin

derrion: what about the 21 is that apart of  the contaminant! slide 22

Simon Timperley: It is your connection oluyemi. As an alternative try watching on IFSQN youtube channel  Type in google.

oluyemi Arosoye: Okay, thanks. I would do just that

Patrick: What is the effectivness of X-Rays in glass contamination detection?

mauro: How can I detect wood in food products?

Staci: Patrick, with this method we just heard, glass sinks, so it should be detected.

Sumeet: Is there any device that can be used to detect foreign materials having density less than 1 example wood, paper, insects?

smita: why detectors do have false rejects sometimes?

Venice: if walk talk radio is used in the line, does this affect the performance of the metal detector?

Malconm: Oluyemi, you can also try to use google chrome

ula childs: Is all bone material detectable with x ray?

Venice: is there any max and minimum size of product to be pass thru metal detector?

James: Is the geometric center of the field also the geometric center of the detector aperture?

Carol Andrade: how frequently should you calibrate the X-ray or metal detector and why is this important

Dhirendra: No issue with sound and picture at my end.

ion] ula childs: What is the best way to cahllenge the x ray detector?

Myrto: Can an aluminium lidding foil sealing a food product be an issue for the utilization of metal detector?

Jeffrey Combs: If we get a detectior. Do we need to make it a CCP in my HACCP plan.

Greg: Thanks - great presentation

Staci: rare earth magnets! dry product

Carol Andrade: how frequently should you calibrate the x-ray or metal detector and why is this importrant

Mark: Jeffrey Combs . Yes

Daniel: not at all

smita: how to clean magnet, metal detectors, x -ray etc?

Malconm: What normally makes magnets lose their strength rapidly in a food processing environment? How can we minimize such loss in strength?

Patrick: 'It is generally not possible to calibrate metal detectors but they need to be serviced regularly'I came across this statement from a guidance document, Is it true?

Patrick: 'It is generally not possible to calibrate metal detectors but they need to be serviced regularly'I came across this statement from a guidance document, Is it true?

YOUSSEF: Would you can send the manual for both metal and X Rays sets

Albertus Viljoen: J Combs - depends on your risk assessment and CCP determination

Venice: If frozen and chilled products are combined in one packed finished product, is this an issue during  metal detecton test?

Bria: Patrick what guidance did you find that in?

Mark: Frozen and chilled in one package? frozen product is set at a certain temp and chilled at another. Don't quite understand that??

Daniel: Where did 330 come from?

sheetal: thank you very much rebert.

Patrick: It was a Code of Practice document from Tesco(I found it on the IFSQN discussion forums page)

YOUSSEF: Thanks a lot for your kind efforts

Humberto: Is there a way to set/target an x-ray machine to read the density of the product, and then make the x ray detect any values out of that range?

sheetal: I am very grateful of Simon to bring this kinds of subjects, which helps a lot . Thanks you very much. Thanks Robert for this wonderful webinar.

Constantine: I also would like to say thanks for this good webinar.

smita: Thank you Robert! it is great presentation and Thanks Simon...!! for bringing this platform for  us

Linda: Great webinar. Thank you

mauro: all the questions are well done and the answer are great Thanks Robert

Venice: thanks a lot for the very informative presentation.

Luz: Thank you for sharing this excellent and useful information.

Javier: Aluminum 1.0mm and metal detector.... go!

Christine Lomo: how to prevent cross contamination  for process metal detection to meat fish?

duygu: Thank you Simon for this such a beneficial platform and  thank you Robert for this great presantation..

Abha: thank you

joven: Thank You from Indonesia!

David Levy: Thanks Robert and Simon!!

Myrto: thanks

YOUSSEF: Good Job Robert, thank you very much

Javier: I missed the presentation itself, but based on the Q&A I know it was very informative.  I will watch the recorded session!  Thanks!

Martin: common sense approach, thank you

ula childs: excellent and a great refresher
