Good day all,
We are adjusting our Food Safety program to align with the new CFIA regulations. There are some changes such as new CCP determination questions and more justification/validation evidence.
I am referencing the CFIA website guidance for meeting requirements.
I have attached the CFIA example for Hazard Identification And Evaluation Template. It all makes sense but when you look at the last row regarding allergen cross contamination, they have an allergen program in place for post allergen cleaning and pre non allergen production inspections. They still claim a significant hazard with the justification that if the allergen program is not strictly followed there could be allergen cross contamination that can harm consumers with allergies.
I find this confusing because if any control program is not followed there is risk of harm to consumers.
Is it the fact that that the item is allergen?
Looking forward to comments.
Here is the link to the page and please see the attached guideline example.
