Did you verify? (If only I had).
A simple question that requires a pause and a careful probe to confirm the accuracy of key information before continuing with next step. The verification step can make all the difference in your food safety system.
Yes, it can slow you down and lab testing is expensive, but if risk-based thinking is applied to your testing programme, you can plan for this in your budget, and in the end the verification step may prevent rework, customer complaints and product recalls which may negatively impact the reputation of your food business and cost you a lot more money that your verification testing.
