I guess it’s no wonder that extremely stringent packaging check procedures are demanded by Issue 6 of the BRC Global Food Standard when you read this article from the Food Standards Agency. This is a fairly basic and avoidable error. Let’s hope that the Issue 6 BRC Standard requirement to look at root cause when things like this happen will help.

What could be the root causes of packing the food into the wrong packaging? A number of potential scenarios reveal themselves here including:

  • Not removing old packaging before a new production run.
  • Good old fashioned human error and carelessness.
  • Failure to exercise product release procedures to check that everything is as expected before food leaves the factory.
  • Lack of training and real staff involvement in food safety and quality procedures.
