The event

By foreign bodies we understand solid bodies in a food that are not part of the formulation and thus do not belong in the product. This covers above all splinters of glass, stones or pieces of metal, as well as bits of wood or plastic of various origins. However, foods can also be contaminated by organic materials, for instance by insects, maggots or small rodents. On the one hand such foreign bodies can harm consumer health. On the other hand they can also lead to complaints and costly product recalls, that are connected with image losses and can possibly lead to expensive recourse and recovery actions.

Within the context of HACCP, foreign bodies should therefore be detected at critical control points and then diverted and removed. Production facilities and packaging lines can be equipped with appropriate electronic systems for this purpose. What technology can be expediently used depends on the respective product and the respective conditions. Nowadays both packaged and unpackaged products can be examined with an extremely high level of selectivity.

The objective of this session is to present different ways of registering foreign bodies and to work out for what applications they are best suited.
