I just got promoted to working as the QA Mgr and some programs I have inherited, meaning I did not write them. In our environmental monitoring program, we do perform ATP swabbing however, it is also written that we perform in-operation swabbing. Is this a requirement, per SQF? Sometimes, there is not much to swab in-operation as all utensils, machinery, and equipment are in use, and feel silly swabbing something I know will fail. Does anyone have any information if this is a must. I work in a SQF level 2 facility with low risk. We handle acidified foods and have another line that mixes and packages seasoned butters. I appreciate any feedback.
