Allergen Control Checklist

When working with allergens in food manufacturing, it’s critical to have checks in place to prevent cross-contamination events. Controlling allergens comes down to three main strategies:

  • Production control measures to ensure that workers properly handle allergens.
  • Effective container management to prevent accidental use of allergens.
  • Comprehensive documentation of all supplier requirements and allergen information.

If you want to avoid major recalls, implementing these allergen risk controls is essential.

This free checklist covers some of the basic best practices in these three areas of food manufacturing that your team should follow. It includes checklist items on topics like equipment maintenance and sanitization, container labeling, and allergen storage.

You can use this template as a generic checklist or make your own edits to create a site-specific checklist that your employees can use for certain processes.
