Do any of you guys path test incoming raw ingredients?
We just had an internal audit. I've been testing random raw ingredients that we receive, quarterly, for the last 12 years. My last internal auditor said: Why are you doing this? They come with a COA and have already been tested. You've never had a positive result. Even if you did, what do you think the vendor would do? They're going to say 'we already tested it, it's fine, you must've corrupted the sample'.....
All this actually makes sense to me, and I think I'm going to do a little write up and close this testing out in the future.
Any thoughts or inputs guys?
