Hi Shi,

 

Fish proceesing and packaging is definitely a high risk operation . The cans should also be sourced from a high risk approved facility, as its a primary packaging.

shi mendoza,

 

In tuna process, not only the sterilization stage is CCP.

Imagine if the stage an anomaly occurs in the crimping process:
Consequence: Poor sterilization and / or re-contamination with pathogens during sterilization by crimping defects;
Conclusion: You made sterilization, but because of defective crimping, your product must be rejected.

 

Rgds.

Thanks guys. However, when i use the BRC's production zoning decision tree, i always stop at Q3 since the product undergoes thermal processing. :headhurts:

hi charles, i categorized tuna processing as Low risk production but i got confused on the comments i read in the forum. Based on the standard, any product that is designed to undergo a later validated kill step that ensures the product is safe for human consumption is considered a low risk production. I just needed somebody to agree with me and confirm that my assumptions are correct.
