Hi Simon,

   I'm currently working on a bakery, which do not have any allergen control procedure because of size and scale limitation. We plan to list all allergen on product label, is that acceptable?

Kind Regards,

Hi fongthen,

 

Not sure if yr OP refers only to labelling or includes the process also.

 

If the latter, the answer to OP seems to be NO. eg -

The FSMA experts here will likely know if a size exemption exists.


Kind Regards,

Listing all allergens on the label is not helpful for consumers and is a last resort if you have no control; I'm not sure if it is illegal, but it is definitely bad practice.

"May contain" allergen statements do not legally remove your obligation to ensure that unlike allergens (those not reasonably likely to occur in a particular product) are not in said products.
