Eriez® Offers Overview of HACCP Regulations and Recommended Magnetic Equipment that Meets Federal Safety Guidelines

Press release date: January 14, 2010

Erie, Pa. - Eriez®, world authority in magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications, has developed a report outlining the principals of meeting Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) regulations and the role magnetic separation equipment and inspection systems (X-Ray and Metal Detectors) play in improving product purity, protecting vital process equipment and removing potentially harmful ferrous contaminants. The report, titled "HAACP Overview and How Eriez Magnetics Can Help You Succeed," lists the seven principals in monitoring Critical Control Points (CCPs) as set for by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Readers also gain knowledge of the various types of magnetic equipment--from plate magnets to drum magnets-that impact the sanitary operations during product processing. There is also a section dedicated to inspection systems and how Metal Detectors and X-Ray Systems play a role detecting contaminants before products are shipped. The Eriez document is in PDF format and available for download at About HACCP: HACCP is a systematic preventive approach to food safety and pharmaceutical safety that addresses physical, chemical and biological hazards as a means of prevention rather than finished product inspection. It is used in the food industry to identify potential food safety hazards so that key actions, known as CCPs can be taken to reduce or eliminate the risk of the hazards being realized. HACCP is used at all levels of food production and preparation processes, including packaging and distribution. The FDA and USDA say that their mandatory HACCP programs for juice and meat are an effective approach to food safety and protecting public health. Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company's magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through ten international facilities located on six continents. For more information, call toll-free (888) 300-ERIEZ (3743) within the U.S. and Canada.
