Hi there,

 

i think that would depend largely on what type of food product is being produced, whether RTE etc, and the potential for contamination.

Yr query is rather ambiguous. I presume you mean swab limits for NZ for unspecified surfaces (tables, urns ??)

 

IMEX, the milk industry in general tends to go for the more strict options for swab limits, eg < 100/cm2, sometimes <<.

I also appreciate if someone can give the reference document for the same. as ISO 18593 doesnt contain the standard limits for swab results.
