Hi. According to  Malaysian standard's haccp, we need to included "reworked material" in the product description, does anyone here know or have any idea what does it mean by " reworked material'?

Hi QCDept,


Reworked means any material from a previous batch is processed into a new batch. Examples;

- Reworking left over dough from a previous production into a new production.
- Repacking a product because of misslabeling
- Reprocessing cooking sausages (miscellaneous cuts or trimmings) into new sausages
- Using left over cookie crumbs into cookie icecream ;)

Maybe your process does not include rework, than it can be stated as such.
If you do use rework you should perform a risk analysis. Main problems lies in tracability and cross-contamination (bacteria, allergens, undeclared ingrediënts).


Hope this helps!
