Abstract

Foreign body contamination of food and drink products is the single biggest cause of product recalls in the UK. However, not every foreign body incident need result in a recall, and immediate scientific investigation of the nature and cause of the foreign body can help manufacturers determine the best approach to dealing with a specific incident and in preventing its recurrence.
