In need of creative solutions...
Gearing up for our SQF certification audit (Level 2) and dealing with the metal detector reject system, or lack thereof. SQF requires that any food that passes through a foreign material detector and has foreign material detected must be isolated by the detector equipment. For background, our line moves slowly and may have 5" up to 16" pieces moving through it.
It has been three months since first bringing this up with Engineering and they have yet to act. Does anyone know of an alternative to the typical paddle/air nozzel/retractable belt into a "REJECT" box that only trained CCP monitors can access? I was imagining a spray nozzel with dentaurant dye that could spray on a timer. Our packaging line is very manual so about 5 sets of hands would physically touch that product before it could be put in a finished package.
Shoot me down or provide ideas! I appreciate!
