I have a question and I need honest opinions!
We are an egg packing site, low risk, no CCP's.
The amount we deal with open product is limited and even so it is an egg so in it's own protection shell. (We take a pallet off a truck, travels around 50 metres onto the loader and that is that - we don't physically touch an egg and all eggs come out of the machine already packed. We use no foreign body detection equipment.
DO YOU THINK WE NEED TO HAVE METAL DETECTABLE ONE PIECE PENS? or are normal pens sufficient for this situation? Maybe as long as they are controlled somehow?
Pens are only used by QC and supervisors. so tops up 5 people.
Please advice what you think is necessary in this situation. Is something like this entirely our decision as long as we have risk assessed?
