Good afternoon everyone,
I have searched the site for a while and it seems that there is not a very good solution for us as of yet but I thought I would at least throw it out there for some help.
We are a processor of Barley and Oats for animal feed. We get the grain in by truck, rail car, and cargo ship load. These are all brought in and stored in the facility in a flat storage manner (no bins or silos). The question comes down to traceability and how we do our lot coding. Currently the setup is each ship load is given a lot but they only do one full test (for pathogens) each year and the rest of the time we only test for vomitoxin. So my question is, are there any recommendations (with our current setup) for how to handle what to do in case of a recall situation?
Right now we could see when the grain comes in but since it all just gets mixed together as of now it is impossible to segregate that lot.
Anything I may need to clear up please let me know. I am brand new in the position and so it would be great to get some help, feedback, or links.
Thanks in advance!
