Production (processing) department managers should appoint production/operations employees to maintain a FSMS Lot Identification Product Traceability Log Template for every product line or item the company produces. FS1130-1 LOT IDENTIFICATION PRODUCT TRACEABILITY LOG (EXAMPLE) should be used for guidance.
The FSMS Lot Identification Product Traceability Log Template covers production date/time, name/SKU, quantity, production line, ingredients, and more. Employees responsible for packing (packaging) and storing food products should ensure product containers are clearly labeled. Additional hazard/health information (e.g., possible presence of food allergens) should be listed as required by applicable statutes/regulations.
The Quality Assurance (QA) Manager should periodically review logs and other records generated in the course of product processes to determine if the labeling and traceability system is being properly implemented and continues to conform to company and statutory/regulatory requirements. The QA Manager should report findings and observations to the Food Safety Team Leader for review. A third-party audit of the labeling and traceability system should be conducted at regular intervals.
