Johnsonville Sausage – Food Inspection Equipment Reduces Physical Contamination Complaints

X-ray system helps sausage manufacturer up its game. North America’s largest fresh sausage manufacturer, Johnsonville Sausage, initiated a group wide x-ray inspection project in 2003 aimed at enhancing food safety inspection of meat, while simultaneously ensuring a low false reject rate.

Eagle’s ‘Food Inspection Equipment Reduces Physical Contamination Complaints’ case study explains how installing an Eagle™ Pack 430 PRO product inspection system has not only enhanced Johnsonville’s foreign body detection capabilities, but also sped up production as it is capable of inspecting two lanes at the same time.

In addition, the case study shows how the x-ray detection system’s ability to match a rejected product with its specific x-ray image enables rejected products to be reworked, leading to cost savings.
