Hi Quality-Assurance,


To validate effective cleaning after producing an allergen-containing product I swab the equipment one swab before clean and three after clean, and send a product sample also to the lab.


It may depend on your scheme and customer requirements also; I used to have a customer that required us to do five allergen tests in the factory pre-production every week, which I would use in-house Romer Labs.

Pine nuts are not nuts (at least as defined by the EU).
