I know I post many questions, but I love gaining insight from everyone :)
So we sell raw pumpkin seeds, we buy them from a supplier. This supplier does give us a COA indicating it's clean, free of pathogens (E.coli, Salmonella)/. However they sent us a letter indicating that they do not recommend selling raw product and cannot be held responisule for any raw product that is sold for consumption. , That despite their COA indicating its free of pathogens, without a further kill step such as cooking or roasting they cannot guarantee the absence of pathogens. And I agree with them.
However management are confused about this. What are everyone's suggestions/recommendations about this? We just repack those raw seeds and thats it. Shall we indicate on the package a warning for customers? That they must cook and cannot consume raw product? Or we just discontinue selling it? Thanks!
