Good day.  I am in search of a labeling and packaging checklist.  Our product is hand packed in a production room and then coded and hand stacked in another room.  We currently do not have any checklists for the operators and would like to implement them.. Examples would be greatly appreciated.

Hello pamlargen,

 

Our checklist in our packaging and labeling includes all the printed matters on each side of the packaging. Ex: barcodes, declared allergens, product name, nutritional value. All the things that are printed are all important and must be checked regularly.

 

regards,

redfox

A master binder with a page for each product including actual labels for comparison is probably the easiest to implement. The a check sheet to go along that each item (size, label, skid label etc) was checked against the master.

I am assuming you work with customer approved labels,etc. This minimises checking lists.

 

IMEX  it's necessary to use QA Operatives to cross-check Production Personnel for this activity. It works if internal communications are OK.

 

 errors are reduced if can have a specific internal code for every item embedded on the relevant object. Not always possible of course.

 

Date coding can be a nightmare if various export destinations involved. And also depending on the complexity of customer's required format.

IMEX the methodology in previous post works OK for QA. The latter also need to be supplied with an approved, date-coded, master label, etc for all daily packed items.


Kind Regards,

Our policy (and allergen preventive control for FSMA) is that QA has to approve the labels we receive in house to make sure they have the correct allergens, ingredients, UPC, etc before they are released into production. In production, the operators are only responsible for verifying that the label matches the product we are running - they don't have to verify the UPC or allergen statement since those are already verified. 

We document checks for lot code and correct product label for the first label of the day and each label changeover thereafter. We also retain a label from each check on our paperwork. 

Same for our secondary packaging (we make jars of nut butter that go into labeled cases then palletized) - I have the operators document that the correct case has been used and with the correct lot code for the first case of each pallet layer.
