Vision Inspection Manufacturer Urges 100% Inspection for FDA Guidelines
There are some companies that think making a mistake is not all that critical or costly due to the product they are manufacturing, for example, cosmetic beads, corrugated cardboard or perhaps shoelaces. After all, what’s one missing bead, or one shortened shoelace, right? Wrong! Quality control is an essential ingredient for corporate and/or manufacturing success. It can make the difference in causing a customer to become injured, making someone ill or even be fatal, depending on the circumstances. This is especially true in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industry. The risks of product contamination are many. Why rely on the eyes of one person who even on the best day will get tired when you can add the extra benefit of electronic eyes. 100% Inspection is absolutely essential.
It is important to note that it is not just Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) that your company must follow; the FDA issued a regulatory process that bans the introduction or the intent to deliver into interstate commerce of contaminated or mislabeled cosmetic products. This applies to the food and drug industry as well. Section 601 of the FDA regulations on the cosmetic production industry states a cosmetic product may be contaminated if the following applies:
1. The product or its container have potentially harmful substances not suitable for customary use.
2. It contains filth.
3. It has color additives that are not permitted, or in some instances non-certified.
4. The product is manufactured or housed in unsanitary that may become harmful to users or contaminated with filth.
The FDA warrants that a product is considered mislabeled if the label is false or misleading, its container gives misleading information as to the contents, or there is a failure to state emphatically and conspicuously all information required.
