Thanks for joining us at Edison Grainery.

 

We recognize the “Big 8” major food allergens as identified in the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004:  Milk, Eggs, Fish, Crustacean shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat, and Soybeans.

 

With the exception of prepacked cheese packs for our Q Mac, our product line and production equipment are free from the Big 8.

 

Allergen statements for each of the products offered by Edison Grain & Edison Grainery are available: http://edisongrain.com/products/

 

Locate your desired product and click on Technical Data Sheets.  Most allergen statements are on page 2 or 3. Here you’ll see what’s on our supplier’s equipment and exceptions to our allergen free status.

 

Protocols to ensure protection of food from allergen cross-contact and misbranding include:

  • We require our suppliers to provide allergen statements so we have full knowledge of their allergen profile, and we verify that they employ sound allergen management practices.
  • Products containing allergens (factory sealed containers) are received and   stored in our dedicated allergen warehouse. 
  • Strict sanitation practices are maintained for cleaning equipment and utensils.
  • Employees practice good hygiene, and traffic flow is managed between         allergen  and non-allergen areas of the facility.
  • Allergen labeling verification prevents undeclared allergens.

 

Sanitation is the foundation of Edison Grain Incorporated’s food safety program. We have developed comprehensive Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOPs) intended to prevent food from becoming adulterated and that establish adequate and appropriate steps to protect against contamination and allergen cross-contact.

 

All operations, including receiving/shipping, storage, processing and packing, are conducted in accordance with sanitation principles. Our SSOPs prioritize the practice of adequately cleaning, sanitizing, and maintaining all equipment and utensils. Appropriate quality control activities are employed to ensure that our food is suitable for human consumption and that our packaging materials are safe. A team of HACCP and PQCI trained individuals are assigned various responsibilities to uphold our overall sanitation standards.

 

Edison Grain’s sanitation program includes the following elements in facility design and maintenance  intended to protect against contamination and allergen cross-contact:

  • Sanitary facility controls for water quality, plumbing, sewage disposal, toilet facilities, hands-free washing facilities, and waste management;
  • Employee hygiene standards and procedures;
  • A pest control program;
  • Use of equipment and utensils adequately designed for their purpose and properly maintained;
  • Procedures for cleaning and sanitation of food-contact and non-food-contact surfaces;
  • Use of cleaning compounds and sanitizers that are safe and adequate and that are in compliance with National Organic Program standards.

Production room non-food-contact surfaces are cleaned and sanitized daily before production, between each new product run, and after production;


Food-contact equipment and utensils are cleaned and sanitized between each new product run and at the end of the day in a wet clean shower area and allowed to dry overnight;

 

Pre-production ATP swabbing of food contact equipment to verify sanitation effectiveness;

 

Quarterly environmental monitoring, with testing for Salmonella and Listeria;

 

Annual air and water monitoring.

 

Records for monitoring, verification, and corrective actions are established and maintained to satisfy the requirements of our SSOPs.
