"Food Allergies- a restaurant-owner perspective"

http://shopkinsb14.wordpress.com/2014/04/28/food-allergies-a-restaurant-owner-perspective/

Quote
by making some changes in our kitchens, we can help alleviate this fear and can bring many of these people, who have abandoned dining out, back into the joy of restaurant culture simply by being responsible and empathetic hosts to customers with food allergies.

Ok ... not really about food companies, but putting it in here to encourage them to truly care about FA consumers.

Have you seen this article re #foodallergy x-contact http://t.co/8COB44Z72x

"Cross-Contamination Versus Cross-Contact"

Quote
the term cross-contamination, as it is associated with things like the E. coli bacterial transfers, makes it sound like the kitchen in question is an uncleanly mess of disease. So, by and large, using the term cross-contact is a better PR term for the restaurant.

"Critics Say Food Safety Standards Could Be Threatened by U.S./EU Trade Agreement"
http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2014/05/food-safety-standards-could-be-threatened-in-u-s-eu-trade-agreement/#.U4KH5n-9KSN

Quote
One of the goals noted in a leaked EU position paper was for parties to “engage in such cooperation without unnecessary restrictions, including any institutional, statutory or other barriers/ inflexibilities.” It also calls for the creation of a Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) to have oversight in the regulatory systems of the U.S. and the EU.

"Experts: Charges show government serious on food safety"
http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/money/agriculture/2014/05/21/decoster-criminal-chargest/9379737/

Quote
The charges against Austin "Jack" DeCoster and his son Peter DeCoster, along with their company, come on the heels of criminal charges by federal regulators against two Colorado cantaloupe farmers tied to a listeria outbreak in 2011 and officials and the owner of a peanut processing plant in Georgia that was linked to a deadly salmonella outbreak four years ago.

"Food Safety: Top Concern of Food Industry CEOs"
http://www.foodsafetymagazine.com/magazine-archive1/junejuly-2011/food-safety-top-concern-of-food-industry-ceos/#.U4Xd_XOSN-E.twitter

Quote
The risk of today’s consumers dropping a product if they believe the company is not doing what it takes to protect them and their families is not something to take lightly.


Quote
The risk is too high to “assume” an ingredient from a supplier is always safe or that the supplier to the supplier of his supplier has an effective, verified and validated food safety system in place.

"Controversial Documentary About Food Policy, Industry Opens Today"
http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2014/05/fed-up/#.U7S3oPldWSo

Quote
Among other points, the film aims to show similarities between the food and tobacco industries, emphasizing the view that food manufacturers are in business to make money rather than improve people’s health.

Japanese authorities have set up a panel of experts to study how to inform restaurant customers about allergy-causing ingredients in prepared food - a category not subject to existing labelling regulations.
