I work in a Vegetable Processing Factory. The SPC counts appear to be above 100cfu/swab on some equipment but the coliform and Listeria counts are all within limits. Even our products test results are excellent. As I do not have good knowledge on Food Microbiology, I was hoping to understand if there is a cause for concern?
Is the possible to increase the limit to 1000 as the limit may be too low taking into consideration the products processed have a high natural flora?
