Good day everyone. 

 

I have two simple (hopefully) questions. 

 

I inherited several HACCP plans that have an inconsistency in the assignment of Preventive Controls (PC) per the Likelihood - Severity matrix. 

We use a 5 x 5 likelihood-severity matrix (attached), with 1 being least likely/severe and 25 being most likely/severe. 

My predecessor always had a PC for a result of 12 on our Hazard Analysis Risk Assessment chart, but only sometimes for a 10. 

 

Q1.  At what number should I always list a PC?

 

Q2.  Are allergens always rated as a "fatality" for severity?

 

Thanks for your help!

Q1.  At what number should I always list a PC?

I am not FSMA user but IMEX significant FS hazards (ie requiring direct control) are typically not  generated from a "slight[rarely occurs] likelihood".  The selection of 10 as requiring direct control is questionable IMO. Which situations did yr predecessor use it ?

 

Q2.  Are allergens always rated as a "fatality" for severity?

I handle allergens within a PRP program so yr query does not apply.  Most (labelled) allergens are zero-tolerant  but not all. Regardless,  all are probably regarded as "High" Severity.

 

Thanks for your help!
