Hello All,

Is there a group consensus for which types of products need to be tested for Clostridium per USP <62> and <2022>?  I was told all liquids because of C. botulinum, but FDA BAM (I know it's not USP) was more concerned with C. perfringens in dehydrated soups, sauces and spices.  Any guidance on which products have a higher risk for Clostridium and should be tested regularly would be really appreciated.

Thanks so much,
Carly Bromell
