Howdy,

 

We are a packaging manufacturer with flexograph printing capabilities. We currently have around $7,000 in ink sitting on the shelf. We have previously not received these into inventory with inventory numbers/ PO info, etc. and just considered it "supplies." 

 

Judging by the code, we will need to start receiving this as we do other raw materials, (assigning inv #, knowing which products it was printed on, etc) and be able to trace it one step up and one step down. 

 

My question is this: what do we do with the ink that's on the shelf and wasn't received correctly? I know the vendor for each ink, but I have no way to know which batch/ PO etc. it came from. Will this be a problem? 

 

Thanks for all of your continued support. Really loving the food safety community here.

 

Justin

Not knowing the standard - I assume SQF -- this would be handled in accordance with your NON-CONFORMING procedure. Basically you are going to hold it in place and decide on disposal method.

My apologies, should've mentioned it's SQF, ed 8. Disposal is the only option?  :shutup:

Well, you could sell it back to the vendors - but as it is you can't track it - as a Consultant I'm almost always the wet blanket - I don't know what else to tell you unless it can be reprocessed or re-purposed.

Of course you could always run a documented risk analysis to show there has never been an issue with XYZ from such and such a vendor and then based on that - use it.  Might be thin, but I would give it a 50/50% chance of flying if it ever came up.
