The Agency is proposing to define the term "holding" to mean storage of food. Holding facilities would include warehouses, cold storage facilities, storage silos, grain elevators, and liquid storage tanks. For farms and farm mixed-type facilities, holding would also include activities traditionally performed by farms for the safe or effective storage of raw agricultural commodities grown or raised on the same farm or another farm under the same ownership, but does not include activities that transform a raw agricultural commodity, as defined in section 201(r) of the FD&C Act, into a processed food as defined in section 201(gg) of the FD&C Act. The Agency is proposing the same definition of "holding" here as in proposed
The Agency is proposing to define the term "lot" to mean the food produced during a period of time indicated by a specific code.
The Agency is proposing to define the term "manufacturing/processing" to mean making food from one or more ingredients, or synthesizing, preparing, treating, modifying or manipulating food, including food crops or ingredients. The proposed definition would also state that examples of manufacturing/processing activities are cutting, peeling, trimming, washing, waxing, eviscerating, rendering, cooking, baking, freezing, cooling, pasteurizing, homogenizing, mixing, formulating, bottling, milling, grinding, extracting juice, distilling, labeling, or packaging. For farms and farm mixed-type facilities, manufacturing/processing would not include activities that are part of harvesting, packing, or holding. The Agency is proposing the same definition of "manufacturing/processing" here as in proposed
Proposed SEC 507.3 defines "microorganisms" to mean yeasts, molds, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and microscopic parasites and includes species having animal or human health significance. The term "undesirable microorganisms" includes those microorganisms that are of animal and human health significance, that subject food to decomposition, that indicate that food is contaminated with filth, or that otherwise may cause food to be adulterated.
The Agency is proposing to define the term "mixed-type facility" to mean an establishment that engages in both activities that are exempt from registration under section 415 of the FD&C Act and activities that require the establishment to be registered. An example of such a facility would be a "farm mixed-type facility," which is an establishment that grows and harvests crops or raises animals and may conduct other activities within the farm definition, but also conducts activities that require the establishment to be registered. The Agency is proposing to use the same definition as would be established in proposed
The Agency is proposing to define the term "monitor" to mean to conduct a planned sequence of observations or measurements to assess whether a process, point, or procedure is under control and to produce an accurate record for use in verification. For further discussion on the definition of "monitor" and its consistency with HACCP, see section X.B of the document for the proposed rule for preventive controls for human (78 FR 3646)).
