Your Health Matters
No manufacturing process is perfect all the time. Mistakes do happen. And unfortunately, there are also unethical businesses who are more interested in a quick buck than their customers. While the risks of contamination from food contact surfaces are very low, certain chemicals like lead and cadmium can be a problem – especially for children.
Most companies only test their raw materials, some might test their final product once. At Koe, we have independent laboratories analyze random samples of final products from every manufacturing run we do. These labs ensure that FDA safety standards for food contact surfaces are met. Some might call that paranoid, we call it caring about our customers.
