Plant Sanitation Surveys/Audits
A yearly audit of the manufacturing plant is conducted to assist management in detecting problem areas and to recommend corrective action. Recommendations may be used to ensure, initiate, or enforce quality manufacture practices. The audit is conducted according to FDA guidelines to prepare plant personnel and the facility for possible inspection by governmental agencies.
The microbial quality of finished product and raw materials are monitored on a monthly basis to detect any contamination problems and to build a sanitary profile for these products. The PCI laboratory is FDA-certified for such tests and the results are accepted by all regulatory agencies of the government. In addition, should there be a contamination outbreak at a facility, PCI employees can travel to the site to trouble shoot the cause of the contamination.
