Mike Cohen of Food Safety Associates brought up a valid and important point via DISQUS about the packaging, processing, and prep of chia seeds (food handling). It is vital that staff are trained in food safety and food allergy awareness in order to meet food safety requirements and to package goods safely for consumers.
Food Safety Associates is an online platform offering food handling and food safety services via online courses. Based in Ventura, CA we recommend the website for businesses and employers based in California (more congruent with state regulations).
Should you be a food startup, staffing in the food industry, or a manager of a promotions/marketing demo we highly recommend you certify your staff and contractors in food handling and food safety practices. Safe for you and safe for consumers.
