Our on-site microbiology testing procedures follow the FDA’s Bacteriological Analytical Manual (BAM) and includes testing capability utilizing rapid, state-of-the-art DNA methods for:

  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • Listeria spp
  • Salmonella
  • E. coli O157:H7
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Escherichia coli and coliform bacteria
  • Aerobic Plate Count
  • Yeasts and Molds
  • Lactic acid bacteria

We have developed a comprehensive environmental monitoring and testing program. By assessing our facility and conducting daily food contact and non-food contact specimen analysis, we are able to control the potential for contamination in our manufacturing processes.

Our environmental monitoring and testing program includes: Daily pre-operational visual and tactile inspection of production equipment and environment for sanitary and sound condition, assisted by

  • Organic (ATP) residue testing
  • Generic bacterial testing
  • Allergen residue testing

Monitoring of all production lines and facility environment for

  • Listeria spp
  • Salmonella
