First I want to thank you all for the help and advise you have given me thru the last year. I'm happy to say we just got level 2 certified. One of the NCR's that was raised was the change in temperatures in one of our coolers when we change commodities being held. We are a freight forwarder who handles many various products including tropical fruit. During our busy season however we handle all berries and the tropical fruit business dies off. We change the temperature/clean and sanitize/ this room before changing it over to a berry storage room. When I had my audit it was raised as an NCR as to how I ensure that there was no product in the cooler when I changed the temperature and how I record such a thing. The way I recorded it was by placing a remark on my daily temperature log of what commodity was in the cooler at the time. The auditor believed this was insufficient.
I was wondering if any of you had a practical solution that will satisfy the auditor and also be useful for us. Any help is appreciated.
