An Objectionable organism is one which can either cause illness or degrade the product thus making it less effective. But how to define what is an objectionable organism?
Microbiologics have an interesting discussion paper on the subject. Here is an extract:
A manufacturer can detect objectionable organisms in its product by:
1.Performing tests for specified microorganisms as described in USP <62>.
3.Performing a risk analysis to determine which organisms would be objectionable and then devising a plan for detecting the organisms.
