Good days!

 

Regarding to Environmental Monitoring Program released in October 2022 (attached), there were several requirement to make sure our cleaning and sanitation is effective to control microbial contamination.

 

 

1. Is there anyone know what Microbiology Criteria Standard for sufrace area (in the scope food packaging manufacturer)?

Example, we decided to swab table surface, and we got the result are 100 CFU/100 cm

2. Is there anyone know what Microbiology Criteria Standard for finished product (food cans)?

 

Please share the references if any.

we need your advice on this matter.

 

Thankyou so much

Hi abb,

 

There is no attachment.

 

There is no Global Standard for just cleaned/sanitized APC/Surfaces. Data can vary with aspects such as type of material/function of table/analytical methodology/etc.

 

Some  Food manufacturing surfaces data is compiled/analysed here  -

Note the considerable variations/expectancies.

 

Offhand, your result (1cfu/cm2) looks "acceptable" although one datum is insufficient for a general conclusion. Data for other parameters can also be relevant, eg -

 

Attached File  micro.hazard in food packaging manufacturing.pdf   1.07MB   28 downloads

 

ATP data might also be informative, eg

 

Attached File  bacteria-on-can-lids.pdf   633.44KB   17 downloads

 

PS - You may find this analogous EMPG request for BRC Packaging Standard to be useful if you have the time to look up the various sub-links -

Hallo Aly,

 

I think you wanna talk about FSSC 22000 New Guidance about EMP?

 

1. For the standard it depends on the company, and is also based on Finished Goods Standards. for example like 3000cfu/100cm  for  TPC

 

2. In indonesia, you can search SNI for food cans, if we talk about fish food cans, you can look at SNI 2712:2013

 

Best regards,

Thanks
