To echo Brian, yes. Our company got bit by BRC just before my arrival that we had a policy but no training or acknowledgement for visitors/contractos. Here is our basic alleregen policy "Currently none of the products manufactured by "company name" for our customer contain any of the allergens identified by the FDA or Canadian Department of Health, or the European Union. If a new product is introduced to the facility by a customer, ACPI management will review the ingredients for any allergens, and will follow a policy agreed upon by the customer in regard to cleaning, testing, and segregation. A copy of that policy is attached to this document. Training for allergen awareness is included in our annual food safety training along with visitor/contractor GMP policy"
I use a video series from the "refridgerated foods of america" but here are my new employee slides and the quiz from them.
Here is the statement from my visitors log and contractor training. "Allergens should not be brought into our facility (peanuts, tree nuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, fish, shell fish, wheat) as we do not manufacture products containing allergens, this could create cross contamination".
