Some sanitizing wipes and disinfecting wipes are not intended for food related industries, yet they occasionally find their way into food manufacturing and food handling facilities. Here is a list of things to look for to ensure that the wipes you're using are safe for food industry use:

 

Use Sites: If the wipes you are using list use sites from dog kennels to beauty salons to wrestling mats, but do not include food contact surfaces, you may be using the wrong wipe. The wipe's label should include use sites such as food processing equipment and food-contact surfaces.

 

Requires a Rinse: If the directions for use state that a potable water rinse is required after wiping, then they aren't D2 rated, and likely not the best choice for food production and food handling areas. Adding water back to a recently sanitized surface runs the risk of re-introducing bacteria.

 

Kill Claims: Check to see that the kill claims include pathogens of concern for food processors. Also, ensure that the kill time and efficacy meet your plant's requirements. Beware of 5 minute and 10 minute kill times, which can hold up production. 

 

Strong and Lintless: A wipe that tears easily or that leaves behind lint is unacceptable in a food processing environment. Even small pieces of debris or thread could result in lost time, lost product, and at worst — a recall. You need to have confidence that the wipe you are using is an asset and not a liability.
