sustarinSustarin® C XDT has been proven to be detected in a particle as small as a 3mm cube on production Sustarin C XDTlines running as fast as 250 feet per minute. Repeated handling, cleaning and normal wear and tear of plastic component parts on food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing machinery increases the risk of a fragment breaking off and contaminating the product during processing.The need for traceable plastics, especially machined parts for filling, sorting and packaging machinery is critical due to strict FDA regulations regarding foreign materials and contaminants.

With new regulations in place, the FDA now mandates that all food processors have comprehensive preventative controls and safety programs in place. They have complete authority to recall food due to contamination, and it is well known to food processors that a recall can kill a brand.
