METTLER TOLEDO CI-Vision, a leader in the design and implementation of machine vision inspection programs, has made available a white paper that details the benefits that a vision inspection component can add to a food safety assurance program. Click here to read the full paper, or to forward it to a colleague.

According to a recent AIB International report, 43% of food product recalls is due to package mislabeling. The FDA reports that mislabeled products, omitting allergens or other potentially dangerous constituents constitute a major food safety issue and a leading cause of recalls. As a way to safeguard against devastating FDA recalls, implementing a vision inspection solution can provide  

the assurance that 100% of defective labels are detected before ever leaving the manufacturing floor. Vision inspection systems are able to detect 100% of the defects they are trained to capture, thus eliminating the potential of mislabeled products reaching the consumer, and protecting brand owners from potential recalls and liability.
