Dears,
I have an inquiry about the microbiological limits for RTE foods as per FDA or USFDA or even EU , the information that I have is RTE food shall be zero pathogens like salmonella and E.Coli but what about total plat count ? Is there a limit ?
My industry is spices and herbs.
Thanks for your help,


M.Yusuf

Hi M.Yusuf,

 

Yes. The answer(s) to yr query is typically illustrated in the Product Specification which usually contains a mixture of Safety (eg BCPA) and non-Safety (eg Organoleptic) criteria. However the exact mix will vary with the product.

Hi Julio,

 

See attachment com4 in this Post (which may be a later version of document used for the "extracted portion" in post 3)  -

 

https://www.ifsqn.co...-al/#entry12799

 

(Note that the data column is misaligned in "extracted portion" but is correctly formatted in full document. However also note that the values for "molds" in full document may be a (duplicated) typo of APC values and that the correct values may be as given in the extracted portion.)


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
