Further to the blog post - The Merits and Pitfalls of Engineered Focus in Product Safety Assurance

Many people in the food and health products industry (professionals and non-professionals) have been conditioned to think narrowly about product safety. Only a few are able to escape from the narrowly engineered focus and think freely? An example of the engineered focus is the usual understanding about what constitutes a safe food product. Some people may be able to think beyond the following definition. The majority of people in the industry do not think of food safety beyond this scope:
A safe food product is that which is free of contaminants (biological, chemical, physical and other agents that cause unhealthy reactions such as allergens, and sensitizing agents). 
This could very well be an unproven hypothesis. So, let’s put it to the test. Responses to this post will prove or disprove the hypothesis. Here is the challenge: Do you know of anything that is seriously minimized or completely left out in the definition of a “safe food product” as provided above?
