Well I must admit I am confused.
My SQF auditor is asking for a written preventative controls plan. I guess I thought that my Food Safety Plan that addresses all of the prerequisite programs and the preventative protections they provide is the PC plan. But she states there is a specific format for a PC plan. I have been using the free FDA food safety plan builder which covers every process step and all. I don't know what is left to give. Can somebody help me understand what it is that they want?
So then I wrote what i thought was a PC plan. It was structured as follows:
The plan was broken into categories i thought were the proper structuring for a PC plan. Each category notes the Policy or SOP from my SQF Policy manual that addresses that area of the PC plan.
1 Hygiene training for managers, supervisors and employees
2. Current Good Manufacturing Practices
4. Sanitation Procedures
5.Food Allergen Control Program
6. Environmental Monitoring Program
7. Product Testing
8. Pest Control
9. Food Defense
10. Supply Chain Controls
11. Product Recall/Withdraw
But, neither the document created above nor FDA Food Safety Plan Builder nor my other attempts has satisfied the auditor for a PC plan.
I thought the depiction above of 1-11 was the "proper format" for a PC plan. Can anyone point out what I am doing wrong? I am lost.
