Good Afternoon all

 

We are frozen dough manufacturer that is SQF certified for the last three years. This has never come up with the auditor but should lot code records be kept for sanitizer and cleaning supplies for food contact surfaces, look forward to any feed back.

 

Thanks in Advance

Good afternoon Mr. Dough,

 

It is a good practice to keep records of lot codes for food contact surface chemicals and sanitizers.  In the event that your supplier notifies you that their product was contaminated and could cause your product to be considered contaminated you would know what lots of products are implicated.

 

I'm not sure if any standards directly require this but I've worked in places where we did this.

 

Good luck,

 

Mr. I

Was this brought up in an SQF Audit?

 

In answer to your question - should you?  -- yes, good idea, but not a requirement of SQF that I know of - if it was brought up by an SQF Auditor please do contact the Auditor and ask him where this appears in the code manual - we'd all like to know I am sure.


Kind regards,

Have never had that come up in an SQF audit.  It's good practice, but not required afiak.

Thanks for the feed back, it hasn't come up yet with the auditor just being proactive. This forum as always is great for knowledge sharing to improve.

Hi,

 

we do it already for all in contact with FCM since many years for traceability reasons. IMO, it is best practise to do this.
