Canned Tuna HACCP
The Tuna Council HACCP Guidance for Canned Tuna (referred to from now on as the Tuna HACCP Guide) is prepared as a reference and training handbook. The Tuna HACCP Guide has been prepared to assist the tuna processing industry in the development, implementation, and maintenance of appropriate Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs for the commercial production of canned and pouched tuna products that will meet the requirements of the U.S. FDAs Seafood HACCP regulation (21 CFR 123) for products that are intended for commerce in the United States.
