RECOVERY OF AT-RISK PRODUCT

ABM’s product reclaim service allows the recovery of food and other products suspected of foreign body contamination. When producers receive a complaint about product, the entire batch will often be recalled or put in quarantine until it is expired and ultimately disposed of. Similarly, when production managers realize there is a contaminant in one item out of thousands or simply fear there may be, the batch is sold at a risk or parceled out to employees.

To solve this problem, we rent out x-ray machine for producers’ use or receive the product and perform the product in-house. We’ll unintrusively scan the product for rocks, bones, glass, metal, etc., and provide x-ray images of each scan for added assurance. From bones in chili, needles in boots, to explosives in air bags, and holes in bread we’ve seen it all and can help with any application. We have an expert team with a 24/7 service policy, 30 machines in stock for quick delivery, and the experience to give you the same level of confidence we have.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which contaminants are detectable?
Anything with a large enough density difference from your product. The most common contaminants are glass, metal (stainless, ferrous, non-ferrous), mineral stone, dense plastic & rubber, and bone. There are other materials x-rays can find in many situations, and not all of the materials just listed can be found under all circumstances. It all depends on your product and the medium.
What about cans, glass, and foil packaging?
We can find glass in glass packaging, metal in metal packaging; it really doesn’t matter provided the density of the contaminant differs enough from that of the product.
How can we assure buyers that the product is safe?
Our proprietary software, DSO Sentinel, was designed to provide peace of mind for large clients like Costco and automatic audit fulfillment for their suppliers. This software archives and stores inspection data including optical and x-ray images of every item produced. We use this software on every reclaim we perform so that our clients have proof of product safety.Optical and X-Ray Images of Product
