Our grain elevator processes soybeans (raw product) packages it into to bags/bulk and is shipped around the world for further processing.
Currently our only CCP in our process flow is the metal detector which is the last point the beans cross before being bagged or loaded bulk into a container.
They are looking at doing some renovations to our plant and this would involve moving the metal detector causing it to no longer be the last point the beans cross before being bagged.
What does this mean as a CCP? Is this okay as long as there is no chance of metal getting into the product after the metal detector? What if the product passes through metal pieces of equipment?
