Allergen awareness training for those working in the food industry is vital. We have all heard of cases where food has not been prepared in a safe environment. Where there has been cross contamination, or incorrect labeling. All of these errors could lead to a serious life threatening reaction, which could cause severe disability or even death.
Allergies occur when the persons own body has an overwhelming reaction to a substance. Allergies are on the increase, which is why it’s especially vital for those working in the food industry to be aware of.
