While your product is classified as an allergen, you now need to think about the controls to prevent it being contaminated by other allergens - especially peanuts, tree nuts and sesame which are usually the ones of most concern.

Hi Sans,

some of it depends on the legislation in your country... whether you need to declare the product itself as an allergen, as well as any allergens which you may be adding to it.

If you are processing a mix of products f ex fish, crustaceans, molluscs, you must do a risk assessment on the probability of cross contamination from one to another.

I have come across this in a shellfish production facility which has molluscs and crustaceans and they had to do an in depth risk assessment regarding cross contamination.

Hope this helps
