Inspection and testing
This food is classified as a surveillance food.
We refer consignments for inspection at the rate of 5%. During inspection we will conduct a visual and label assessment.
If the milk or dairy content is not declared on the label in an allergy statement or in the ingredients list, we will apply analytical testing to confirm if milk or dairy content is present.
Table 1 shows the test that will be applied and the permitted results.
Table 1, Tests applied and permitted results
|Dairy allergen test applied||Permitted results|
|Beta-lactoglobulin||Less than 0.1 ppm|
|Casein (expressed as skim milk powder)||Less than 1.0 ppm|
|Total milk (expressed as a non-fat dried milk)||Less than 2.5 ppm|
Goods (other than animal products) are retorted if they are heated in a hermetically sealed container for a time, and to a temperature, sufficient to make the contents commercially sterile.
