Firstly - thank you in advance for the responses...this is a great site and I am late to the boat but enjoying the ride :)
I am after any advice / ideas regarding an allergen swabbing program.
I am putting one in place in our factory and want to know what others have done.
How often? How many? etc etc.
We have a bacterial program (petrifilm) that runs after cleaning and also our Listeria program that will all be a part of this in a broader sense. I am looking at the allergen swabbing program to just be a verification of these other programs and also to back up our work with VITAL and associated labelling.
At this stage I am looking at a fairly basic program (due to numerous factors) that involves swabbing each room in the factory once per month and the swab points would be based on risk. also I am wondering how you coordinate the timing - I would like to swab in between product changes (after the clean) to prove production scheduling plans and cleaning work.
