I wonder if anyone has a copy of a rework procedure I could look at. We produce vegetarian pies.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Chrissie

Below is a link to a discussion I had here on the forum about rework:

https://www.ifsqn.co...chips-pretzels/

The following is the simple policy that we came up with based on discussions on the forum here and with some customers of ours.

--------------
It is the policy of XXXXXX that we do not rework products. To clarify that statement, three definitions are given below. If analysis of the product dictates, we will recycle or reprocess a product.

Rework: treatment of product by a process different than what was
originally used to produce the product.

Recycle: treatment of a product through a predetermined redirection of
product to a previous step in the process.

Reprocess: retreatment of product by the same process to provide
acceptable quality and/or food safety.
--------------

So our conclusion is that, for instance, redrying a product that is high in moisture is reprocessing as opposed to reworking. We will send a product back to some point in the process, if need be to bring it into spec.
