I just finished a webinar hosted by TraceGains on SQF V8 mid year review. I will post the slides once I get them as they include the top non conformities YTD
But today I wanted to pass this along;
2.4.8 is NOT mandatory but the RISK ASSESSMENT is
So if you assess away the risk as I have done (but only because of the nature of our finished good) you do not have to swab/test anything
However, if your risk assessment shows you may have an environmental pathogen issue, then you best get to swabbing!!!
