Corrective Actions

When you discover ingredients that don’t meet safety requirements, it is important to have a Corrective Action Program to address the problem. 

In the example for aflatoxin verification, if the processor doesn’t receive a Certificate of Analysis showing that the lot has been tested and approved for low aflatoxin, they may need to hold the lot until testing is confirmed. If large foreign material is found in the lot, they may have to reject it and return the lot to the supplier to investigate the root cause and implement preventative measures.
