Food Safety

Food safety is the scientific discipline that describes the proper handling, preparation, and storage of food to prevent foodborne illnesses.

Laboratories can achieve the ISO 17025 standard to ensure quality control requirements are met for food safety. They may also gain accreditation for specific food analysis tests, like testing for peanuts, eggs, or soy. However, it’s important to note that not all labs are accredited for every method, like testing for milk, shellfish, or gluten. Companies must ensure they choose an accredited lab for the specific allergen test required by regulations.
