Data has revealed aflatoxins is the biggest cause of food-related recalls, which demonstrates the importance of role-effective sorting and quality analysis systems in boosting food safety on the production line.
Produced by Stericycle Expert Solutions, The Q1 European Recall and Notification Index found that aflatoxins, a fungal toxin that contaminates crops, were behind 21% of all food recalls, followed by salmonella, pesticides / fungicides, metal fragments, chemicals, listeria, insects, and E. Coli.
Despite an overall drop in food recalls in Q4, 2014, there was a 67% increase in recalls relating to nuts, largely as a result of issues with products coming from India and China. Those originating in China spread to 13 countries and were primarily due to aflatoxins.
