Does anyone handle celery at their site and how do you validate your cleaning?
I wanted to use the rapid test for verify the clean, then send a lab test to validate the clean and in turn also validates the rapid test. Our product is very short shelf life (max 4 days) so by the time the lab test comes back it would be out of spec. I can't find any specific rapid tests for celery online either, unless I'm just not searching for the right product...?
As I understand it, the validation goes something like this: swab pre-clean on key points then swab same points post clean. Send finished product post clean.
Thanks in advance.
