Someone shed some light on this for me please.
So every single audit from SQF or BRC I have been present for always involves the auditor going over to the vending machine in the employee break room to make absolutely sure there aren't any products that have peanuts in them....
WHY? We have sings posted stating no food may leave the break room and that all employees must wash and sanitize their hands after leaving the break room! So what is the big deal? It seams as though we should instruct all employees to not eat peanuts or peanut butter at their homes as well. (sarcasm)
The auditors never seam to mind that the machine is full of other allergens (wheat, soy, milk, ) nope, they only care about the peanuts. What gives?
