Packages are x-rayed to detect any bits of glass in the frozen birds.
Previously, the factory has only had metal detectors, but x-ray is the best method to discover glass.
“We are concentrating our efforts on finding the best technology to detect foreign objects in our products," factory manager Tom Hansen told Ny Teknik.
Four different x-ray machines have been hired and are being tested in the coming weeks. The factory hopes to have determined and implemented the optimal production equipment by the end of April.
Between five and ten million kronor have been invested in the x-ray machines, which is equivalent to the losses the company has experienced due to recalled poultry.
