I searched for this problem but did not find anything, possibly because it is such a stupid error no one has done it before
After two 3rd party audits, daily monitoring and weekly review I just noticed I have a < (less than) instead of a > (greater than) sign before the critical limits regarding temperatures for one of our freezers.
It is correct in my written plan but incorrect on the actual monitoring sheet.
The temperature monitoring is not a CCP but is now a PC for FSMA
I can correct the sheet in time for my FSMA compliance date and hope the FDA doesn't ask to look back before the compliance date, but I still have years of monitoring records for future 3rd party audits.
I was thinking of just correcting the monitoring sheet and hoping at the next audit it will not be noticed, but I believe the correct thing to do is write a corrective action stating the error and that the monitoring sheet was corrected as of today.
Is that the correct way to handle this?
Thanks for any help
