Allergen cross-contact happens for several reasons.
Residue may be left behind if equipment is not cleaned adequately after a food with an allergen is processed; the next food made on the same equipment may become contaminated with an allergen.
It is important to know what allergens are present in the facility. Forms can help document and plan to prevent cross-contact.
