we are a company which does puddings in ceramics and unfortunately metal detector won't work for us to detect broken ceramic pieces.
We are using X ray, but we don't send all products currently through it.
we have sieving food mix as CCP with a fine mesh 1mm.
Can we consider the below Canadian link , and consider 2mm as scientific evidence for the critical limit? how do we justify the finding of unacceptable and acceptable?
also, we couldn't get any evidence from the manufacturer that the mesh size is 1mm which is a problem.
also, how do we check the integrity of sieve?. we check it on a daily basis in opening and closing checks.will this be enough or do we need to check it for every batch?. also, it will be a manual visual check for the sieves. will this be enough?.
After sieving comes depositing in ceramic ramekins which also can have broken ceramic shards which will again be a ccp as it will be a risk if not checked. this ccp will be a visual check for any object or cracked piece to be removed if it is more than 2mm although we remove and take every precaution to remove every piece. how do we justify the acceptable to not acceptable in haccp?. we can't demonstrate to auditor that we check size of every particle to see if it is above 2mm?.
any help is appreciated.
