microbiome. These tools are not new
scientifically but are being utilized in
the pet food and treat industry with
greater frequency."
With these tools, the ability for
pet food manufacturers to monitor
contamination - and risk factors -
with such a unique clarity has revolutionized contamination control. In
the future, Martin says, these technologies will be standard practice.
Pond says the use of magnets and
metal detectors have improved the
food safety of ingredients as they add
more lines of defense and increase
the opportunity of removing foreign
material from the process. TOMRA,
Leuven, Belgium, a manufacturer
of in-line sensor-based sorting machines, offers sorting solutions for
pet food producers that can remove
small particles of foreign materials from dry meat and bone meal,
ground frozen meat, biscuits residue,
and dry kibble.
Metal detection specialist Fortress
Technology, Toronto, has recently
introduced a hygienic inspection
pipeline designed to be a pathogen cross contamination deterrent.
According to Fortress, bacteria,
including Salmonella and campylobacter, multiplies by doubling every
20 to 30 minutes depending on the
conditions, and prefers high protein
foods prevalent in liquid form. The
Meat Pump Pipeline from Fortress
is designed to assist wet pet food
processors inspecting high-viscosity
meats to optimize hygiene standards and tackle cross contamination, without compromising metal
detection sensitivity.
Testing methodology is another
segment that is always improving, thanks to advancements in
tools and tech. "Technology is improving our process very quickly.
The ability to capture data and
analyze it quickly makes us better," Pond says. "We are currently
in the process of implementing
tablets in our facility to capture

"The largest advancements in
contamination control lie in the
area of whole genome sequencing
and evaluation of the microbiome."
