Hi

 

I'm drafting my revised QACCP plan, and I'm having toruble finding the right wording for my hazards.   In my HACCP plan, all hazards are formatted like this "

 

"Contamination of _______ with (choose one: pathogenic microorganisms/chemicals/hazardous extraneous material) due to _________":

 

For example -

"Contamination of chocolate blocks,  returned product, rework, in-process chocolate, packaging materials and/or finished product with pathogenic microorganisms due to contact with unclean utensils, tools, molds and equipment as a result of improper sanitation procedures."

 

Stolen from Canada's "FDA" website (forgive me Canadians, I cant' remember your acronym), this works perfectly for all of the hazards we found specific to our plant. 

 

For Quality I want to use the same format.   But "Contamination" sounds wrong, mostly we aren't avoiding contamination.  I was thinking "Defect"?  Is there a common word that equates to quality that is used often?   I know there has to be one, but I'm totes blanking on it

Defect works, but other choices would be flaw, blemish, imperfection, deficiency.......... that is what comes to mind.  (I am usually better finding a word with a full sentence or more).

the most common one I see is 'non-conforming product' which is a very accurate description IMO...... doesn't exactly trip off the tongue though!

I may sound like a complete idiot...but actually there are a couple of bits missing
