I work for a company that makes food contact packaging. We use bug zapper lights to control the flying insects.
Most of our raw materials and finished products are covered. However, material may be exposed when the pallet or other container has been opened during a production run.
The maintenance manager at this plant used to work for a company that produced and packaged cheese. He said that company required a 10 foot clearance from bug zappers to prevent any insect parts from getting onto raw materials or finished product.
Six months ago we recently obtained SQF Level 2 certification so we are still relatively new to food safety for packaging suppliers.
Does SQF require any clearance area around bug zappers. I already know that we should do a hazard analysis but I am wondering if SQF or equivalent has a specific standard cited anywhere.
