Inspection and testing
This food is classified as a surveillance food.
We refer consignments for analytical testing at the rate of 5%. During inspection we will also conduct a visual and label assessment.
Table 1 shows the tests that will be applied and permitted results for each food type.
Table 1, Food type, test applied and permitted result
|Food type||Test applied||Permitted result|
|Powdered follow-on formula – for infants 6 months and over||Salmonella||n=10, c=0, m=not detected in 25 g|
|Powdered infant formula – for infants 6 months and under||Salmonella||n=10, c=0, m=not detected in 25 g|
|Cronobacter||n=10, c=0, m=not detected in 10 g|
n = the number of samples to be analysed from a lot of food.
c = the maximum number of sample units that can be greater than ‘m’.
m = the acceptable microbiological level in a sample unit.
