I use good old fashioned swabs

 

Test coats for TVC, Entros and Listeria

Wellies for Listeria

It is if you're packing for TESCO (8.13.1)

We get our laundry company to swab the coats after laundry and forward the results.

Yes, Pink this is what my cients do also. Use the swab results as validation, has passed BRC ( grade A) and several customer audits in June and July.

 

 

 

 

Hmmmmmm I thought BRC was supposed to reduce audits, not increase them...... :shades:


I'm entitled to my opinion, even a stopped clock is right twice a day

I had thought of that trubertq but thought maybe an auditor might say that the results are not impartial.However if it is common practice...and who am I to argue with a grade A, fair play to all involved.

 

I also agree with your comment on increase audits  :spoton:

Hi 

 

Again on this topic what would you accept as an acceptable TVC. I am thinking less than 500 cfu/g, and the absence of pathogens however I would appreciate any feedback.
