Senate leaders urged to consider tracking technology in food safety reform

The chief executive officer at iGPS is urging the U.S. Senate to mandate the latest tracking technology in legislation pending to overhaul the nation’s food safety law.

Bob Moore, chairman & CEO of iGPS, says that cost-effective technology that allows products to be traced through the U.S. supply chain might have helped contain the spread of hydrolyzed vegetable protein products contaminated with Salmonella.

The list of recalled products containing the contaminated HVP has now topped 100, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is expected to grow as the popular food additive is found in everything from soups, sauces, chili, stews, hot dogs, gravies, chips, dips and dressings.

“Fresh on the heels of the nationwide Tylenol recall, this HVP recall once again illustrates the need for tighter controls in the U.S. food supply chain,” Moore said in a prepared press release. “In this case, we see how one common ingredient can disrupt the nation’s food supply and potentially threaten millions of people. We hope this reality will hasten Senate consideration of product tracking technology and action on critically important food safety legislation.

The Senate has not yet scheduled action on the food safety bill, which the House passed overwhelmingly last year.

iGPS operates the world’s first pallet rental service providing manufacturers with lightweight, recyclable all-plastic pallets embedded with RFID tags.  Unlike the more than one billion wood pallets in circulation, the RFID tags in iGPS plastic pallets allow products to be easily traced at numerous points along the supply chain, providing a way to pinpoint and contain contaminated products.
