Hello all,

 

I have a question regarding best practice for double allergen use.  We have a fully functioning allergen program that has been in place and effective.  Soon we will add an new allergen (SESAME) and when this happens we will have some items with 2 allergens.  What is the best way to deal with this.  I am referring to color coding etc.  

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions !

Perhaps the best way is attaching a colour to the BOM (if you use those) so when pulling for item X and Y use orange, when pulling for item B use grey 

 

You can then post the BOM + the colour all over the plant

So are you saying use a specific color for the double allergen as opposed to either by themselves?

 

I have seen this suggested but it seems to get fairly complicated...

 

Thanks for the clarification!

That is what I'm suggesting

 

If you really do only have items containing allergen A on it's own and others with Allergen A&B then I would have the A&B it's own colour BUT dedicated for each allergen 

 

Flour (wheat) a orange and a grey scoop

 

Sesame gray scoop only

 

With colour coded BOMS, you have less risk of a Grey ingredient being added to an ORANGE BOM
