We have potential new business using Pet jars to package food we produce. I'm freaking out a bit as I have no experience with this type of container.
So far a search for food safety related information is all from a consumers point of view with leaching chemicals.
What I need to know is what control(s) do we put in place to prevent physical contamination.
Is PET production pretty safe to where we don't have to worry about pieces inside the jars?
This project is not big enough yet to expect specialized equipment on the packaging end.
And then more on the quality than food safety side what kind of defect rate should we expect on lids fitting atop jars?
Thanks for any advice
