I agree with Caz.
Michael this is some really serious stuff... people go to jail for massive illness or injury incidents especially when it is something they do blatantly and they knew that it could cause illness or injury. If you have a piece of equipment break down enough to spread metal fragments throughout your product stream that isn't picked up at a CP or found by quality and if it ends up in the body of consumers you may find yourself without a job (company closes due to major recall/injuries) or in jail.
In the very least I would:
if you have a food safety team convene a meeting of it and make sure that the meeting minutes show that you brought up that injury to consumers downstream of your process is likely, which is the definition of what a CCP stops, and that you are completely against this.
Find a new job... before they do this. If they are disregarding food safety this strongly they will do it again. And even worse if you roll over on this issue now they will know you will roll over on food safety again and again.
If you operate under a food safety standard and they find out what your doing (without performing a HACCP plan review and somehow reclassifying the risk as not CCP required) they will most likely pull your certification.
Yes your boss is your boss but I'd rather have no job than know I'm willingly putting hundreds/thousands/millions of people at risk.Go to the full post
