Hi.  I work in a commercial bakery and I'm new to food safety and I'm trying to put together food safety plan papers, but I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what the Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards of Active Yeast and Inactive Yeast (Wet and Dry) are.  All of my searches seem to result in yeast and mold being an issue/hazard in other ingredients.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

I'm not in a bakery, so I may not know some obvious risk that others in your industry do, but I would start with the Draft Guidance from the FDA.




On page 23, it lists high activity dried yeast used as a stabilizer or thickener as having a salmonella risk.  It also lists the risk of allergen cross contamination or improper labeling.


I also googled 'hazards associated with yeast' and found a pretty good hazard analysis posted.  Check that out.
