Hi all, currently we are not doing analytical testing on each lot. It is more on a monthly basis. We are relatively small. Run one shift a day. We have never been question. We make granola bites. (Not yet certified SQF). The bites have oats, pasteurized liquid eggs, corn flour etc. We review all CoA's for compliance in negative results/ or within spec. Our water activity it 0.2 or sometime even undetectable. We have never had a positive Salmonella result. We are always way above temp on our critical limit. Do we need to conduct analytical tests daily or per lot? We would need to send these out to an external lab which is $$. We do conduct testing/ share a COA based on customer need. We do conduct testing per lot based on customer requests. My question is- how do you know if I need to conduct analytical tests on a lot basis? I feel our product is very low risk. There for we do not need to. But is monthly to infrequent? Thanks!
