Hello,

 

I'm trying to determine the best way to document a Foreign Material incident investigation.  Obviously, in SQF (or any other reputable food safety system), if it's not documented, it didn't happen...so, what's the best way you've found to document this?

 

I'm thinking maybe a simple form?  Or would you just use a CAPA?

 

I don't want to re-invent the wheel if possible, but I also want to make sure we do this the right way...your thoughts would be helpful and appreciated.  Also, if you have a form you use, and can share with me, that would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Here is the form we recently started using.  The purpose in going to is was to trigger a more in depth foreign material investigation as it relates to metal than does our standard CAPA

Hello Imarsh15,

 

Thank you for your response, but I believe something went wrong...I'm unable to locate the attachment.

 

Can you please try again?

 

Thanks!

I would just use a general corrective action procedure and form.  You could apply this to any type of incident that necessitates some type of corrective action.  I've never had a problem doing this; no auditor has rejected our corrective actions.

 

The devil is in the details and while specific forms can possibly make the process go more smoothly think about how many different forms you need....that's a lot of forms that may never get used.
