Hello IFSQN! 

 

I urgently need some assistance. We are in the middle of a Preventive Control inspection by the FDA. They have requested to be provided with a scientific study that proves there is no biological risk in vegetable oils. I have searched many times for a (free) scientific study that supports it. We have an upper end spec of 0.1% moisture for our products, so growth wouldn't be supported... but how do I prove this?! 

 

I know we can do an independent challenge study but those are pricy and couldn't be completed within the week :) 

 

Does anyone have a study that supports this????

Use their own documentation against them. Appendix 1: Potential Hazards for Foods and Processes -  pg. 67

 

It lists no biological hazards.

 Thank you! I have this handy, wasn't sure if it would be enough but it's definitely something!

It's worth a shot. If not - this article does list some hazards but very few.

This contains some other information I had been seeking as well. This also gives me a new acronym to search that I haven't used before (EPO)

 

Thank you so much for your swift assistance!  :spoton:

I used this first and they accepted it, TYSM! :shades:
