Food Allergen Regulations
Each passing year sees more states bring in legislation that makes allergen training a legal requirement.
- Rhode Island
- Montgomery County
If your state currently does not have any legal requirement, under federal law, FDA Food Code 2013, you still have a legal responsibility to serve food that is safe and do everything possible to protect the consumer. Protecting an Allergy Sufferer falls within this Food Code.
We strongly recommended that anyone who works within the food industry completes an allergen training course.
Remember, simply put, a basic mistake could kill somebody!
