cross cutting changes
Cross-cutting Changes

  • Information on completing HACCP Plan and Hazard Analysis moved to Chapter 2
  • Expanded information on how to conduct Hazard Analysis and how to prepare HACCP Plan
cross cutting changes3
Cross-cutting Changes

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

  • More information regarding the symptoms associated with pathogenic organisms and toxins in Chapters 4 to 21.
  • Verification – standard language for calibration of temperature sensing devices – recommend “checking for accuracy” before use and daily

chapter 6 natural toxins

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 6-Natural Toxins
  • Molluscan Shellfish

    • Pectenotoxins (PTX) & Yessotoxins (YTX) are described (Mouse toxicity but no recommendations for control)
  • Finfish
    • Based on new risk data, the northern gulf of Mexico is considered problematic for ciguatera
    • Action levels for both Caribbean &Pacific ciguatera toxin

Note: In cases where unpublished literature was used to develop for controls, the guidance was subjected to peer review – action level for ciguatera

chapter 7 scombrotoxin histamine formation

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 7-Scombrotoxin (Histamine) Formation
  • Based on FDA studies conducted in Hawaii and Grenada, changes in harvest controls for scombrotoxin species are being considered
  • Greater detail about an appropriate sample for histamine testing

Note: In cases where unpublished literature was used to develop for controls, the guidance was subjected to peer review – harvest controls for histamine

chapter 7 scombrotoxin histamine formation6

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 7-Scombrotoxin (Histamine) Formation
  • Additional recommendations for primary processor at receiving:

_ Sensory evaluation

_ Receiving temperature

_ Corrective actions

  • Additional information regarding the receiving by a secondary processor
  • Clarification regarding risks with salad products and need for HACCP controls

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

  • Changes in the listing of guidance levels for heavy metals
  • Updated tolerance levels for heavy metals
chapter 11 aquaculture drugs

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 11-Aquaculture Drugs
  • The addition of new approved drugs
  • An explanation of “extra-label” use of drugs
  • A list of drugs prohibited for “extra-label” use
chapter 12 pathogen growth

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 12 – Pathogen Growth
  • Growth parameters modified according to new information
    • Maximum cumulative exposure time
    • Recommended time of exposure critical limits for CRE
    • Recommended time of exposure critical limits for non-CRE
chapter 13 clostridium botulinum

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 13-Clostridium botulinum
  • Describe performance and suitability of Time-Temperature Indicators (TTIs)
    • Conforms to Skinner-Larkin formula
    • Functions under conditions of use
  • TTI’s are not intended to replace usual controls for product receipt and storage
  • Provides control strategy for ROP, raw, refrigerated product with no secondary barrier to C. bot. growth using a TTI.
  • Provides control strategy for frozen product with no secondary barrier to growth (CCP for labeling)
chapter 16 cooking and pasteurization

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 16 - Cooking and Pasteurization
  • Cooking and Pasteurization combined in one chapter.
  • Pasteurization defined as a heat treatment applied to eliminate the most resistant pathogen of public health concern that is reasonably like to be present in the food.
  • End-Point Internal Product Temperature (EPIPT) provided as an option to continuous time/temperature monitoring when processor has conducted a study to validate a 6D process for Lm (Listeria monocytogenes).
slide12

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 17 - Pathogens in Raw Molluscan ShellfishProcesses designed to retain raw product characteristics
  • New chapter
  • Covers pathogen survival through post harvest processing to retain raw product characteristics
      • Hydrostatic pressure
      • IQF with extended cold storage
      • Mild heat processing (Strategy listed in Ch 16)
      • Irradiation
chapter 19 undeclared food allergens and certain intolerance substances

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

Chapter 19 -Undeclared Food Allergens and Certain Intolerance Substances
  • Information provided on Food Allergen Protection Labeling & Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA).Food that contains allergenic proteins be labeled to clearly identify the potentially harmful food component (e.g., salmon and cod).
  • Hazard Analysis information updated for major food allergens, certain intolerance substances, and prohibited food additives.
  • New control strategies and example HACCP plans for undeclared major food allergens.
  • Recommend that finished product labels be checked at time of labeling – rather than at receipt of labels.
appendix 4 pathogen tables
Appendix 4--Pathogen Tables

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

  • Changes in Table A-1 e.g., limiting conditions pH, wps, water activity
  • Changes in Table A-2 e.g.,
    • Recommended Time of Exposure Critical Limits for CRE
    • Recommended Time of Exposure Critical Limits for Non-CRE
appendix 6 fish names
Appendix 6 – Fish names

FDA-Hazards and Controls Guide – 4th Edition

  • Includes a table of Japanese and Hawaiian vernacular names and their corresponding U.S. market names.
national seafood haccp alliance

  • Sea Grant/University Seafood Specialists
  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration
  • Association of Food and Drug Officials
  • NOAA Fisheries Service
  • USDA Extension Service
  • Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference
  • National Fisheries Institute
  • Seafood Products Association
alliance accomplishments
Alliance Accomplishments
  • Basic HACCP training curriculum developed & recognized by FDA (1990s)
  • Approximately 26,000 people trained
  • Alternative (Internet based) training format developed in 2001 (~4,700 students to date)
  • Sanitation Control Procedures course developed in 2000
  • Train-the-trainer courses conducted
new initiatives for the alliance
New Initiatives for the Alliance

1.Conduct applied research to guide changes in Alliance training programs and materials

  • Conduct a seafood industry survey to assess barriers to the implementation of effective HACCP controls.
  • Conduct a survey of active Alliance trainers to assess knowledge gaps & identify resources that are needed.
  • Conduct a survey of federal & state inspectors to identify the HACCP implementation issues they are encountering.
  • Analyze FDA compliance data to identify specific problems or hurdles that industry is experiencing
  • Use data to guide the revision of existing training programs and the develop new programs or resources.

4.Conduct update courses for the seafood industry and regulators on the new FDA Guidance

  • Develop training materials for an update course.
  • Coordinate activities with FDA and AFDO and its regional affiliates
  • Make training materials available to all Alliance trainers to conduct additional training programs.

5.Update and re-qualify all existing Alliance trainers

  • ~ 675 people have been qualified to be Alliance trainers.
  • Less than 100 were active from 1996-2006 and only 16 people taught more than 10 courses during this period.
  • The Alliance will contact all trainers and determine their intent to train.
  • Trainers will have a period of time to attend an update session or participate in a Webinar type of training session to be re-qualified to deliver the Alliance training program.

6.Conduct new train-the-trainer sessions

  • Empower a new group of Alliance trainers.
  • Currently scheduled Train-The-Trainer sessions:
    • May 25-27, 2010 - Battle Creek, MI
    • June 28-30, 2010 - Miami, FL
    • July 27-29, 2010 - San Francisco, CA

7.Develop new problem solving Applied Training Pods (ATPs) for the seafood industry

  • Identify key issues or food safety hazards for which industry is having trouble complying with FDA expectations.
  • Develop and test problem solving modules available on demand via the Internet or other delivery mechanisms to help firm’s develop effective HACCP controls and records.
  • Evaluate the ATPs and make appropriate changes.
