Abstract:

Food items produced at F.E. Warren AFB met the microbiological constraints of SAC Regulation 146-1. A Hazard Analysis HA to aid in production guidance was of limited value due to a lack of predictability of production procedures and would be of maximum utility only if quality was maximized. Sanitation was generally satisfactory but a lack of consistency in sanitizing surfaces was evident. Recommendations are made of improving current production procedures and for a new program to enable a realistic HA to be obtained and for making the laboratory more efficient.
