Good day Everyone,

 

I know this question is being ask already but I have been out of the site for a while. 

 

Could anybody share the latest experiences with FDA Inspections/Investigations?  Just curious to see what are the main objectives.

 

I work in a Spice and Extract Operation and we had FDA/ State of Texas Observation visit but we were alerted of the "SWABATON" coming.

 

Any experiences you can share will greatly appreciated.

 

Glad to be back

K

I had them in Tuesday and Wednesday actually.  No swabbing - they just wanted to observe processing/sanitation, look over FSPs, allergen management, training, and supplier approval documentation.

I was at a company still new and right before I got there they informed me they did get a FDA visit for swabbing. They told me they took around 20 samples from different areas in the facility (different zones) and swabbed for Salmonella & Listeria. They simply want to test your EMP.
