The source of foreign matter in food and control training materials, so comprehensive you must need!

Issue Time:2020-10-27

Foreign matter is an important factor affecting product quality, and it is also one of the factors with the highest proportion of customer feedback and customer complaints. In order to better control foreign matter and improve product quality, here is an introduction to the source of foreign matter and the method of preventing foreign matter.

Source of foreign matter

(1) Classification of foreign bodies:

A Foreign matter:

Metal, glass, gravel, hair, thread wool, paper scraps, wood chips, plastic, paper scraps, glove leather, and other items other than this food.

B Foreign body:

The foreign body of the product itself, all the foreign body of the product itself that cannot be accepted by the customer, such as paste residue, hard fish bones, etc.

(2) Reasons for mixing foreign matter:

The analysis of the mixing of foreign matter from the five aspects of human, machine, material, method and environment usually has the following reasons:

Person A:

Bringing in processing personnel: As a labor-intensive enterprise, poor management of personnel can cause serious foreign matter incorporation, such as: mixing in hair, wool, glove leather, band-aid, buttons, keys, accessories, cigarette butts, etc.

Machine B:

Damaged and mixed processing equipment and equipment: Damaged or detached processing equipment and equipment can easily cause the mixing of foreign objects. Such as the damage of baskets and knives; bulbs and glass breaks cause glass mixing; welding repairers have welding beans, welding slag, etc., which cause metal mixing.

C material:

Poor handling of raw materials: raw materials come from bases, processing sites, etc., and they contain some sundries such as insects, hay, etc., and improper cleaning or incomplete cleaning during processing will cause foreign matter or foreign matter to be mixed in.

D method:

The processing method is incorrect, the raw material itself has a lot of foreign matter, and there is no process of sorting and cleaning to remove the foreign matter.

E ring:

The mixing of foreign matter caused by poor processing environment: such as the mixing of flying insects and flies in the packing box; the mixing of flies and flying insects in the product; the mixing of broken or falling cement blocks on the wall, etc., and the unclean water quality (impurities in the water), inner packaging materials Foreign matter can cause foreign matter to be mixed in and affect the quality of the product.

Measures to prevent foreign matter from entering

The prevention of foreign matter mixing is the primary problem in food processing. The common and frequent control of foreign matter mixing must first analyze the cause of the mixing, and take firm and effective measures to prevent the possibility of foreign matter mixing.
