The presence of foreign bodies (FBs) in processed foods is one of the major concerns of the food industry, and their detection and identification are important in quality assurance and safety. An FB is any undesirable piece of solid matter present in a food product. When foods are manufactured or packaged, small foreign objects might end up in the product. For example, in the process of packaging food in glass bottles, occasionally fragments of glass are a result of shattering and breakage of the bottle top, and they find their way into the glass containers. Contamination can also be the result of metal scarf joints that originate from production equipment.
