Looking at the food and drug safety crisis from the "poison capsule" ??
"If I want to eat jelly in the future, I will lick my leather shoes. If I want to eat old yogurt in the future, I will lick my leather shoes. If I have a cold in the future, I will lick my own leather shoes. Lick the leather shoes...the invincible leather shoes!" Maybe no one would have understood it a month ago, but now it seems that it can only be described in three words - you understand! In just one month, "leather shoes" has become a hot topic at the moment: "gelatin suspicion" of old yogurt and jelly, followed by "poisonous capsules" of pharmaceutical shady. Netizens even ridiculed that leather shoes may have to "increase in price".??
The "poison capsule" incident refers to some enterprises in Hebei who treated leather waste with quicklime, boiled it into industrial gelatin, and sold it to some enterprises in Xinchang, Shaoxing to make medicinal capsules. Such capsules often contain excessive amounts of heavy metal chromium. Chromium is an essential trace element and a very toxic heavy metal. The 2010 edition of the Chinese Pharmacopoeia clearly stipulates that the content of chromium in medicinal capsules and gelatin materials should not exceed 2 mg/kg. Among the 13 batches of medicines produced by 9 pharmaceutical factories that have been confirmed to contain problems, the Yanlixiao Capsules of Tonghua Yisheng Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. exceeded the standard by more than 90 times the normal chromium content standard.?? ??
On April 16, the State Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency notice to suspend the sale and use of 13 medicinal hollow capsule products. It also stated that the relevant provincial food and drug administrations have been instructed to carry out supervision and inspection and product inspections on the excess chromium of medicinal hollow capsules reported by the media, and sent personnel to the scene to conduct inspections.?? ??
In fact, this incident brought the hot topic of "food and drug safety" to the forefront again in recent years. Food safety problems are emerging one after another. Although the state has repeatedly ordered and strictly enforced them, people still do not understand, who should ensure food safety problems? How can we guarantee it??? ??
I secretly believe that the food safety problem is ultimately caused by the lack of social integrity and the imperfect social integrity system. Strict laws and regulations can only be "fixed after the sheep is gone", and the establishment of a fair, transparent and verifiable production process and monitoring and inspection system can be effectively solved. People's lack of security. As Mr. Du Zhenlin, President of Shenzhen Anti-Counterfeiting Association and Chairman of Shenzhen Huade Anti-Counterfeiting Technology Development Co., Ltd., once said: the openness, transparency and traceability of food and drug production processes and the openness, transparency and fidelity of logistics and transportation links, It is an effective way to solve the crisis of integrity. It is very important to ensure the authenticity and traceability of the whole process from production and processing to warehousing to stores, and finally to consumers by using anti-counterfeiting packaging technology and Internet information technology that cannot be copied, counterfeited, and reused.
Do a good job in the "conscience market" in the printing and packaging industry?? ??
Food and drug production process, including food and drug production, processing, packaging, logistics, sales and other links. The printing and packaging industry also plays an important role in this process. The packaging of food and drugs, the design of packaging appearance, the selection of packaging materials, the realization of packaging and printing processes, and the selection of packaging machinery and equipment all have an important impact on the final flow of products to the market.?? ??
How can printing and packaging companies undertake their own social responsibilities and obligations, and do a good job in the "conscience market" of food and drug printing and packaging? The author believes that the following aspects will be promising:? ??
1. Environmentally friendly green printing such as flexo printing. In the packaging of food and medicine, especially the direct contact packaging media, environmentally friendly and non-toxic printing solutions should be selected. Such as non-toxic water-based ink, UV ink, degradable and edible new packaging materials, etc.?? ??
2. Anti-counterfeiting printing and packaging technology. Through printing and packaging technology, the non-replicability of products is guaranteed, thereby reducing the possibility of shoddy products and fakes in the market. At present, the electronic supervision code of drugs, which is actively promoted by the state and the printing industry, is an important measure to ensure product traceability.?? ??
Three, small package with solutions. Small packaging is conducive to prolonging the shelf life, and is also convenient for inspection and return after packaging damage and deterioration. If the balance between small packaging assembly and product profits can be achieved, I believe that it will have considerable competitiveness in the market.?? ??
Fourth, simple and creative packaging. The emphasis on packaging is not to push the packaging to "excessive", but to adhere to the reasonable and simple packaging concept, emphasizing creativity and lightening cumbersomeness, on the basis of simple materials and methods, win the market with creativity and avoid "excessive packaging".?? ??
Doing a good job in the packaging of dangerous goods in Changshu not only shows the technical level of the enterprise, but also reflects the social "conscience" of the enterprise and the moral bottom line of the country. The "conscience market" of printing and packaging requires a large number of "conscientious" enterprises and individuals to jointly operate.
