Hello All, 

 

I am the compliance and quality manager for a flour mill and bakery so I am very familiar with HACCP and food safety. This week our owner asked me to make him a HACCP plan for a restaurant he and his daughters are opening. The state health inspector is requiring one because they are going to have fresh squeezed juices on their menu. To start they will only have one, celery juice with one ingredient, celery. (disgusting I know but not my establishment) HACCP plan will be very simple but I feel I am overthinking it. There will be no pasteurization, it will be made ready to order. No testing of any kind. The only real control will be supplier approval. Since its just the state will they need supporting documentation or just the HACCP plan? Main thing is I don't know what the state requires for a restaurant and I don't want to waste my limited time making a bunch of unneeded documents. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

 

Thanks,

Supplier verification program

 

-Certificates of analysis will be given?

-How is the supplier cleaning the celery?

-Routine testing of celery for pathogens

Double check FDA guidance on juice....i'm not sure off hand if you need to file with the FDA for this or not

 

www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/ucm072508.htm

 

 

"FDA issued regulations for the safe processing of fruit and vegetable juices in 2001, requiring non-retail juice processors to evaluate their operations using Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles and, if necessary, to develop and implement systems of preventive control measures based on HACCP principles. FDA also issued the juice labeling regulation in 1998, which requires retail processors of juice to put a warning label on any container of juice that has not been treated to achieve a 5-log reduction in the most resistant pathogen. These two regulations are intended to improve the safety of fruit and vegetable juices and to ensure that consumers of untreated juice products are adequately informed of the risks associated with consuming these products."


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

You only need a warning label that the product is not pasteurized and the HAACP plan. For state governments - no need for documentation. If your owner has a ServSafe manual, it's a good reference and can help you as well.

 

My background is in teaching state regulations before moving into federal food safety regulations. HAACP plans are more simple and not always required. If you do run into questions, the health inspectors or state agency are good resources. I found most very helpful.

I deduce Earth = USA

 

Just as a passing comment, I have noticed that many States in USA issue highly comprehensive documents detailing their haccp, etc safety requirements. Typically IIRC in the context of US Retail Food Code.

 

JFI Celery has allergenic potential albeit not, I think, a labelling issue in USA (unlike EU).


Kind Regards,

I love celery juice - it is delicious!

 

Good place to begin would be a juice haccp template.
