Compliant Allergen Changeovers: Ensuring Food Safety and Compliance with KLEANZ

In today's increasingly diverse food market, manufacturers must adhere to strict allergen control measures to ensure safety and regulatory compliance. Allergen changeovers can be a challenging aspect of food production, but with the right guidance and tools, you can effectively manage these transitions. For over three decades, the KLEANZ Family of Services has been the trusted partner for food and beverage manufacturers seeking the highest standards in food safety and sanitation.


The Importance of Allergen Changeovers:

Allergen changeovers refer to the process of transitioning from one product to another on the same production line, with different allergen profiles. Proper allergen changeovers are essential to prevent cross-contamination, protect consumers, and maintain regulatory compliance. Manufacturers that fail to effectively manage allergen changeovers can face product recalls, legal liability, and damage to their brand reputation.


Aspects of Allergen Changeover Management:

  1. Risk Assessment: Assess the allergenic ingredients used in your production facility, identify potential sources of cross-contamination, and prioritize allergen control measures.
  2. SOP Development: Develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) for allergen changeovers, including cleaning and sanitation protocols (included in the Master Sanitation Schedule), staff training, and documentation requirements.
  3. Verification and Validation: Regularly verify that procedures are being followed wherever and whenever cleaning or sanitation is involved. Validate the allergen changeover procedures are appropriate and effective through testing, monitoring, and alignment with SOPs.
  4. Continuous Improvement: Regularly review and update your allergen changeover procedures based on new information, regulatory changes, or internal findings.
