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

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


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.
