I promise myself not to talk about Food Manufacturing again, and I fail... Here goes another one...
About 15 years ago, I was giving consulting services to a Food production company. After one of my Quality Control Audits, I found Mold,
I was an inexpert, young professional back them..., however had my doubts. Then I talked to an expert in HACCP, and asked him:
- Do you think is it possible that the mold was in the air, before sealing the package?!..., because if it was sealed perfectly well, I Do not understand why there is mold on it!!!..
His Answer: Do you believe in "Spontaneous Generation"??!!, because if you do not believe in it, there is no reason to think that Escherichia coli, salmonella, mold, can be created out of nothing!!!
- The product in my consulting services was not sealed well
- If a product has salmonella, Escherichia coli is because during the manufacturing process there were NO CONTROL of Critical Points.
- The Critical Point could be: Time, Pressure, Temperature, etc.
After I read the news of Peanut Corporation of America, all the deaths, millions of dollars spent in courts...., I have not been able to stop thinking about it....,
Even the news, support how wrong we are...,
Newspapers, CBC, CTV, Fox News, CNN, all talk about this Food manufacturing problems, as if there was a:
Spontaneous Generation: Wikipedia gives a clear definition of what this is...
One mistake that Companies and the Media have being doing during the last six years is to talk about problems in Maple Leaf Foods, and all the others companies involved in these Food Contamination scandals..., as `Spontaneous Generation` problems...
We are talking about Technical / Scientific problems here, that affect humans beings!!!, let's forget about the possibility of Spontaneous Generation..., it doesn't work like that!
These are Lessons Learned..., Well, at the moment, they are just Lessons...
we still need to wait a little longer to determine if it has been "Learned"
Have a nice day,

However, in 2009, the Food industry had several incidents with food poisoning..., both in United States and Canada. in my Technical opinion, all because of the lack of Control of Temperature...,
Then comes all the Consumer litigation costs..., that in my opinion would have been solved with a quality Management System based on HACCP, ISO 22 000.
Please, see a video of the News from WSJ:
You might have been told that water boils at 100 degrees Celsius (212 Fahrenheit) but the boiling point of water actually depends on the oxygen content and atmospheric pressure. The higher the altitude, the lower the temperature at which water boils. People who live at high altitudes, like Tibetans, drink their tea while it is bubbling with boiling. Many Tibetans who moved to India suffered serious burns when they drank their boiling tea at sea-level.
