TABLE 7-11 Sampling Plan Characteristics of Crabmeat
Langostinos-Adulteration by Bacterial Contamination
A sample size of 10 is required. The criteria for seizure are the existence of any of the following (CPG 7108.09):
Coliform density greater than 20/g (by MPN method) in 20% of the samples
E. coli density greater than 3.6/g (MPN) in 20% of the samples
Coagulase-positive staphylococci density greater than 3.6/g (MPN) in 20% of the samples
Aerobic plate count (at 35°C) greater than 100,000/g as a geometric average of all the subsamples
For this plan, the sample size is 10 and the acceptance number is 0. It is understood, however, that a change is expected that will increase the acceptance number to 1. The statistics in Table 7-12 apply to these two sampling procedures.
