Hi everyone. I'm hoping i will get lots of suggestions here! I have sent a proposal up through CFIA to allow us to perform a step outside of what the regulations stipulate. The USDA has a separate set of guidelines for frozen poultry, but Canada does not. I want to package prior to chilling (which is currently not allowed)
My question is they have asked me to scientifically justify my statement of collecting raw data from 20 production days. I do not want to do more than 20 because I will know on day 2 if my hypothesis is not supported at which point I would cease the trial and resume as per current regulations. Does anyone have a "scientific" justification for the length of all CCP's within a facility regardless of commodity. All of my CCPs have been validated with the same amount of data.
20 days BTW will translate into more than 300 data points.
