Does anyone have any experience of allergen labelling of wild caught seafood products? From experience businesses would not place a statement on pack (or with the mandatory labelling particulars) that a wild caught fish may contain traces crustaceans or molluscs (based on EU legislation) yet in reality of the risk or bycatch is never fully eliminated with most catch methods. And although there are inspections carried out on the vessel/trawlers, at landing and during processing there is always a risk that a small piece (e.g. baby crab in clams catch) will make it through to the finished product packaging.
Therefore my question is - is alibi / may contain warnings necessary on wild caught seafood products and if so, why is it not actively done at present? Perhaps this is a topic that the industry is conveniently not addressing..
Any thoughts would be welcomed!
Note - the above is based on my knowledge and experience of the seafood industry in the UK and wider EU markets. I'm not sure if other countries and/or jurisdictions manage this differently or have this a requirement entirely.
