I searched for this problem but did not find anything, possibly because it is such a stupid error no one has done it before
After two 3rd party audits, daily monitoring and weekly review I just noticed I have a < (less than) instead of a > (greater than) sign before the critical limits regarding temperatures for one of our freezers.
It is correct in my written plan but incorrect on the actual monitoring sheet.
I can correct the sheet in time for my FSMA compliance date and hope the FDA doesn't ask to look back before the compliance date, but I still have years of monitoring records for future 3rd party audits.
I was thinking of just correcting the monitoring sheet and hoping at the next audit it will not be noticed, but I believe the correct thing to do is write a corrective action stating the error and that the monitoring sheet was corrected as of today.
Is that the correct way to handle this?
Thanks for any help
