The contamination of a product with the physical presence of something not intended to be there (a foreign body), often with the potential to cause harm, can result in issues that may include customer complaints, product wastage, and brand damage.

Any manufacturing or storage and transport business must have an effective control system to prevent product contamination by foreign bodies. This guideline focuses on the technologies behind x-ray and metal detection and promotes best practice on aspects to be considered when establishing and operating these systems.
