The current threats to food safety mainly involve the following aspects: first, drug residues, harmful substances such as heavy metals; second, excessive microbial content in food; third, detection of adulteration during processing. These food 3rd-party inspection agencies can play a role in addressing these issues.
Testing for harmful substances: The harmful substances in food are caused by environmental pollution, such as varying degrees of water pollution, improper pesticide use, and fertilizer use to increase yield. Food third-party inspection agencies can test these foods to prevent polluted food from appearing on people's tables and affecting their health.
Testing for inappropriate additives: The food industry also has incidents of using illegal additives, such as clenbuterol, Sudan red, and melamine. These substances can increase production but have a significant impact on people's health.
Third-party inspection agencies can use their technical means to timely test these aspects, timely correct food safety issues that appear in violation, thus closing loopholes before food reaches people's tables and giving people an extra guarantee of health. Therefore, food 3rd-party inspection agencies are a golden key to ensuring people's food safety and an indispensable part of people's lives.
