Up till now, our company has only produced one type of product, but next month we begin producing 2 more types. All are dry goods, but made of different materials. My understanding of the requirements of metal detection for SQF and FDA purposes is that you have to be able to prove that the metal can be detected when included in your product, so for me the thought follows that each product may have different qualities and must be subject to testing individually. Here's an example: If I make one product with a rice base, one with and oat base and one with a freeze-dried fruit base, I would say I'd have to test all 3 types of metal inside each type of product before the production run to say that the detector is working properly for that product/run. However, I want to avoid overkill as well. so does anyone have any insight/experience on this subject?
Thanks so much!
