Food Safety and Sanitation in a time of Bacteria, Viruses, and Global Pandemics

2020 has raised unprecedented and alarming concerns for consumers surrounding food sources, food processing, and overall food supply chain management. In this time of fear and uncertainty, food processors are faced with an increasing demand for proven safety measures to be diligently put into practice. Food safety is an ever growing concern for consumers worldwide, and as members of the food supply chain, it is our duty to ensure facility sanitation and washdown supply exceed consumer safety expectations and requirements.

What threatens the integrity of food processing? Biological contaminants, or pathogens, are not only found in food, but also contaminate water and linger on surfaces. Harmful bacteria, such as E. coli and Salmonella, viruses, mold, and parasites can grow and reproduce rapidly once in contact with food products, spreading through food handling and consumption. Utensils, processing equipment, piping, floors, walls, corners, and crevices all have the potential to harbor contaminants and pathogens. If not properly addressed, these unwelcomed guests may find their way into distribution or harm the integrity of your manufacturing.
How can we avoid this? Food processors must implement the proper food safety measures and plant sanitation equipment to prevent any cross contamination or foodborne illnesses. Effective cleaning and plant sanitation washdown procedures greatly reduce the risk of food contamination and harm to consumers. Steam and hot water are extremely effective measures for removing soils on surfaces – grease, food residue, oil, and dirt – as well as bacteria lingering underneath. Not only does steam and hot water kill more germs and bacteria than cold water, but the FDA requires contaminated surfaces to be cleaned with hot water of at least 180°F for proper sterilization. Washdown equipment should be available throughout the plant so sanitation protocols can be effectively met in all areas of production. Having a dedicated and educated safety and maintenance team to encourage and enforce safe practices is a vital component of food processing.
