Hi,

 

I work for an eccommerce company that also does 3pl.  

 

To that end we are working on developing our SQF/HACCP food safety plan for Storage and distribution and had 2 questions about allergen labeling.

 

1.  In the case that an entire carton or box applies, are we able to label just the container? Or does each item need a label?

2. We purchased these labels and want to know if they would work?

 

One of our products are military style MRE's that come with multiple ingredients that arent always listed on the outside package, and are sold by the client in packages that contain multiple "Entrees".

 

As such we are treating them all as if they have allergens, hence the general "May contain Allergens" sticker, compared to the other htat lists the allergen.

 

 

We never open or repack any item, and our process for an open or spilled item is the same for allergens and non, the items are discarded and notated, and the area cleaned.

MRE stands for "Meal Ready to Eat"  These are indeed military MRE's.

 

We ware purely Storage and Fulfillment, so these are stored on Pallets until they are set to be shipped.

You would think that the company that actually makes them would be responsible for the correct labeling of their product.

The products themselves have ingredients on the actual packages, but we may have bulk boxes and cartons without that info on them, etc etc, this is mainly for our WH staff to identify it on sight if that makes sense.

If you are not opening the cases, then your situation should be low risk, and simply labeling the master cases should be sufficient.
