hi i work in a vegetable packhouse an i have recently taken over from the food safety person. in her previous audit a non comformance was raisded stating she did not consider "sodium metabisulphite" also known as chipwhite as an allergen in her program. im unsure how to rectify this as we use it in most of our products.
i have attached her management policy, im sure this is not good enough
