Our plant contains 4 different types of allergens (soy, wheat, sesame, fish) with their dedicated production lines. If we do change-overs between production of different allergens, we do allergen swab after sanitation for verification of effectiveness.
Recently, our management have decided to put "May contain XXXX" allergen precaution statement on the labels of all our products to cover all potential cross-contamination. So that if the operator forget to request allergen swab during change-over, the label still can protect the consumers and company, does it really work like that? if it does, what's the point to do the allergen swab?
Please share and help me!! Thanks.
