We are doing multiple shelve studies on multiple products.  The most recent seafood salad product had a day one coliform of  :

 

ONLY TOTAL PLATE COUNT FOOD CMMEF, APHA CHP 7, FDA BAMINE CHP 3, AOAC 990.12

40,000 CFU/g

COLIFORM BY PETRI FILM 1,500 CFU/g AOAC 991.14

YEASTS 30 CFU/g

EF APHA CHP 21

MOLDS 450 CFU/g CMMEF APHA CHP 21 

 

 

 

 

PRODUCT WFM LEMON DILL TUNA SALAD (REF# BS33524)

PACKAGE IN SEALED PACKAGE

CUST ID SHELF LIFE STUDY - DAY 1 - 7/13/2018

LOT# 193

ANALYTE RESULT UNITS METHOD REFERENCE

TOTAL PLATE COUNT FOOD CMMEF, APHA CHP 7, FDA BAM

ONLINE CHP 3, AOAC 990.12     6,900 CFU/g

 

COLIFORM BY PETRI FILM 90 CFU/g AOAC 991.14

YEASTS <10 CFU/g CMMEF APHA CHP 21

MOLDS <10 CFU/g CMMEF APHA CHP 21

 

Consensus is the product is too far out of speck to be useful in any shelf life study.  It would not last 12-18 days.  Do I have this right that the product failed on day 1?    I would use another liquid to do my shelf life study.   would someone comment on the coliforms and should I continue the shelf life study or not
