EXPERT ADVICE ON HANDLING FOOD

Legislation Focuses on Food Safety
Whether it’s peanut butter, spinach or eggs, chances are, your supermarket or instore foodservice operation has been affected by a food recall in some way, shape or form. This year, President Obama signed into legislation the Food Safety Modernization Act, which is designed to provide oversight for the food supply chain in America, in an effort to prevent food-born illness. The rise of recalls due to food-born illness has given way to a greater consumer demand for food-source education. People want to know where the food they buy is coming from, and, rightly

Each year, foodborne illness strikes 48 million Americans, hospitalizing a hundred thousand and killing thousands.

ALERT TECHNOLOGY
In response to the current changes in food safety legislation, Delta Technology & Software, provider of on-demand management solutions for food safety compliance, has launched Alert, a software solution that brings automation, cost control and enforcement to the food safety compliance process. “The importance of prevention is paramount in the food industry. 99.9% safe is no longer acceptable,” said Bill Pappas, chief executive officer for Delta Technology & Software. “With Alert, businesses can act instead of react, stopping recalls before they happen. Safety issues are resolved quickly and early – long before products reach the store shelves or the homes of consumers.” The Alert solution automates and enforces the safety compliance process – inbound, internally and outbound. This new level of control automates the safety testing decision for every shipment. Unlike solutions that simply manage, share or track data entry, Alert also integrates with internal, supplier, lab and customer systems to ensure process consistency and reduce the number of manual touchpoints. The result is tighter safety control and greater efficiency. For more information about Alert, please visit www.alertfoodsafety.com.

Hamburg, M.D., U.S. Commissioner of Food and Drugs, on the website foodsafety.gov. Farm-to-table education for consumers might seem like a far stretch for the instore where local sourcing isn’t always an option. This is where the new law will step in. The focus here is on prevention, and the knowledge that the food supply chain—no matter how long or short from farm to table—cannot and must
