I have a question about hold tags/stickers that are placed on the product box. Do you remove them or leave them on after the product has been approved for release?
We store our cooked product in large combo bin/boxes until it's time to pack it, so this is not the final primary packaging. When I need to place the unfinished product on hold I put stickers/labels on the box to identify the hold, then move the product to a specific location. When the product is approved and safe to use, I have been removing the sticker and placing the bin back into the approved product hold.
My thought is if I leave the Hold label on and add a released or approved label, then I wouldn't have to talk to 5 different people to advise its approved and then have them come back and ask what it was I approved because they don't remember or don't want to look up the Hold/Release Log.
