Mods please move if this is not the appropriate board. In developing our SSOPs and the accompanying sanitation checklists/logs, I came across a rule somewhere (possibly in the GMPs or Food Code) that said that a checklist item literally had to be checked, or "S" satisfactory/"U" unsatisfactory, or "Y" yes/ "N" no, or whatever the line item is requiring. It CANNOT have items lined through or "dittos". For the life of me, now I can't find where I read that...
We have employees just drawing straight lines all the way down the entire cleaning log checklists and initialing at the bottom, or using " in each box. Of course when I tell them it has to have an actual check-mark in each item acknowledging its completion they want to see where it's required and I can't find anything now.
I do believe the same document also said "full dates must be recorded".
Assistance please :) thank you!
