Cross contamination and cleaning: To avoid cross contact the production plan is designed in such a way that crustaceans if any are processed at the end of a day’s production. After that a full clean up is done.. Before the commencement of next day’s production also a full clean up is done and a sanitary analysis both visual and microbiological is carried out to verify the cleaning. Raw materials, in process materials and finished products at all stages are protected from cross contamination by food adulterants and toxic compounds.
Allergen awareness is communicated to employees. Training is given about the identification of allergen, cross contamination and packaging and labeling. This is done once in 6 months.
Raw materials, in process materials and finished products are properly labeled and stored. Labels are inspected at receipt to ensure accuracy. Obsolete labels are removed and destructed immediately. A regular review of product labels versus product being packaged is carried out by the online quality controller.
Allergen Program is updated and evaluated annually or whenever there is a change in the suppliers, raw materials and ingredients.
