This volume identifies gaps in the assessment, management, and communication of food allergen risks. Chapters showcase best practices in managing allergen risks at various stages of the food chain, including during food manufacture/processing; during food preparation in food service, retail food establishments, and in the home; and at the point of consumption. The authors highlight key legislative initiatives that are in various stages of development and implementation at the federal, state and community levels. Finally, the volume includes recommendations for ways to build and strengthen education and outreach efforts at the food industry, government, institutional, and community levels.
Chapters come from an array of experts, including researchers and key stakeholders from government, the food industry, retail/food service groups, and consumer groups. The information presented will facilitate the development of educational materials and allergen management training programs for food production and service staff, extension specialists, and government inspectors. Consumers and other food safety professionals will also benefit from information on food allergen control measures that have been put in place across the food chain.


Tong-Jen Fu, Ph.D.: Dr. Tong-Jen Fu is a Research Chemical Engineer with the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), Division of Food Processing Science and Technology. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Fu's research expands across several areas of food safety dealing with chemical contaminants, microbiological hazards as well as food allergens. Her allergen research focuses on the structural and physicochemical properties of food allergens, the impact of food processing on the detection of allergens, as well as safety assessment of the allergenic potential of genetically engineered foods. Dr. Fu serves as one of FDA's subject matter experts on allergen issues and has provided expert reviews for a number of FDA and international guidelines for the safety assessment of foods derived from recombinant-DNA plants and microorganisms. Dr. Fu has authored or co-authored 33 journal articl

es, 5 book chapters, and 107 abstracts. She has co-edited 3 books.

Lauren Jackson, Ph.D.: Dr. Lauren Jackson is Chief of the Process Engineering Branch at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)/Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN)/Division of Food Processing Science and Technology (DFPST), located in Bedford Park, IL. She received her B.S. in Food Science from Cornell University and her M.S. and Ph.D., both in Food Science, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Jackson's expertise is in the following areas: the effects of processing on food constituents and chemical contaminants, food allergen control, the stability of biothreat agents, and the analysis of chemical contaminants, constituents and allergens in food. She also is one of FDA's subject matter experts on cleaning and other measures for controlling allergens in food manufacturing facilities. Dr. Jackson authored or co-authored over

50 peer reviewed papers, 11 book chapters and co-edited five books. She is actively involved in several scientific organizations, including the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP).
