I do understand the purpose & objective of maintaining Loose Items Register as required by GFSI standards.
We are in the process of introducing this system but concerned about the consequences on what happens if we could not account for missing pen / knife at the end of the day? Are we expected unpack all the cartons packed for the day to search for the missing item. And recall all stocks produced & sent out for the day?
Can anyone who implemented such programs for Loose Items Register, elaborate on what do you have in your written procedure, on how to deal with it .
I can understand the seriousness & importance of this system when you are producing ready to eat products like Milk powder / confectionary snacks / ice creams etc. But I do not understand the importance & value of it while we are packing processed fish that is not ready to eat but to be cooked before consumption.
Let us say if a pen had fallen into fish box at the time of packing, then the customer is obviously going to notice it when every fish fillet is individually handled to remove them from the box.
I request the members for your comments & valuable insights, from your own experiences, on how best we can implement this program, without worrying about the dreadful situation of havng to unpack all the finished product boxes for a missing item.
Thanks in advance
