My question is in a plant that makes multiple products containing any one of the "Big 8" allergens the FDA has dictated, how should one go about creating an Allergen Control Program?
We have a;
-Validated Sanitation Program
All the raw materials we use are dictated by each individual costumer, who we buy from, what we buy, how much we buy and when to do so, all are decided by a costumer.
Of course they all follow the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 which makes companies must state in one of four ways (Contains, may contain, this product was produced in equipment, so on and so forth)
so each product is labeled, but not well enough
I've already decided to color code these allergens but outside of identification, storage (vertical), how can i ensure and demonstrate control in process,
Should a risk assessment out side of the haccp hazard analysis, be done for each product? sort of a Allergen CCP? and if so any one know of any forms i could use?
what else can be done?
Does any one see missing Controls?
Thanks for all your help in advance!!
