If a contaminant, such as a metal detectable knife, enters the production process, it can lead to serious damage to machines, product recalls and worst of all, injuries to customers. If you aren’t using metal detectable knives in your workplace, you are taking a high risk and the result could lead to high costs and a potential loss of image which shouldn’t be underestimated.
Metal detectable knives should be used by all employees working in food, production or highly sensitive areas, especially when manually cutting in or nearby the food production area. Metal detectable knives and even small parts can be traced by existing metal detectors and special X-ray machines, which may already be in operation within your production line. If this is the case, there is hardly any risk that contaminated products will leave your production site, decreasing the chance of them causing serious cost implications to your business.
