Hello Food Safety professionals.
I have run into quite a conundrum. We have a shared line that processes both coconut water and other juices. We are looking for a way to verify all coconut residue has been cleaned prior to running our other non-allergen containing juices.
We are currently swabbing for allergens and the manufacturer of our swabs informed us there is no validation study for coconut residue swabbing. Has anyone else run into this issue?
I need a validated was to verify our cleaning program is removing all coconut residue from our equipment.
Thank You in Advance,
