Topic Background
Allergen Control Programs are multifaceted with elements ranging from ingredient supplier verification, storage, scheduling, formula and rework control, sanitation and changeovers, and label verification. In essence, there are two main goals of an allergen control program, which appear simple on paper, but are very difficult to execute.

Goal #1: If you make a product with an allergen in it, you need to make sure that the allergen is declared on the label.

Goal #2: If you make a product that is NOT supposed to have a specific allergen in it, you need to do everything possible to prevent cross-contact.
