Allergen kit prevents cross-contamination following product changeovers
Dynamic Conveyor Corp., Muskegon, Mich., developed an allergen kit to accompany its DynaClean sanitary conveyors.
The allergen kits are designed to prevent product cross-contamination following product changeovers, making them ideal for processors who convey products that include common allergens such as milk, eggs, nuts, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish.
How it works is, operators simply swap out the conveyor components that are in the product stream and eliminate the potential for cross-contamination. For easy identification, allergen kits include a white conveyor belt (instead of the standard blue), removable retaining walls and optional clear covers branded with an allergen identifier of choice.
