Hello,

So we are selling our products to another company who is rebranding and selling it to the customers as their own. They wanted bulk products, so we are just shoving our produce into big bags and selling it to them. The problem is as we are shoving them into these huge bags, we cannot run it through the metal detector as it is too big to fit in it. How do I work with this? Can we use hand-held metal detectors? Or just write it in our food safety plan that the company rebranding our product is going to run it through the metal detector?

Hi,

 

https://www.fda.gov/.../80342/download

 

if you could read page 386 that should help you

 

 

Example: A primary processor produces frozen fish blocks by mechanically heading, eviscerating, and filleting fish in the round. The primary processor sells exclusively to breaded fish stick processors and has been given assurance by these processors that the finished breaded product will be subjected to a metal detector. The primary processor would not need to identify metal inclusion as a significant hazard.
