My company previously used a consulting company to create a HACCP Plan. We are a tree fruit (peaches, plums) packing shed. In reviewing our HACCP plan I noticed that no CCPs are listed. We do a Post-Harvest Wash of all our fruit and the water is treated with Chlorine Dioxide (it is not recirculated). I feel like this could be a CCP under the guidelines of "prevent, eliminate or reduce the risk of the hazard to consumers." Is there any guidance on why this would not be a CCP?

 

Thank you

Because you would need to Validate, Verify and continually Monitor the washing step to be sure it was controlling the hazard. Most people would consider it a prerequisite program instead.

In some texts it is a CCP.

 

Experts do not always agree. :smile:
