We will be having our AIB audit for food distribution center i.e. warehouse. As a part of a section 1.31, it states the following info:
Personal items and Jewelry present product contamination risks if not controlled:
18.104.22.168: Personnel eat, drink, chew gum and use tobacco products only in designated areas.
22.214.171.124: Personal food and belongings are not brought into production or storage areas.
126.96.36.199: All personal property is stored in a designated area.
This section starts directly from the requirement 188.8.131.52 for food distribution center. The first 2 points are omitted from the food distribution standard which actually states that personnel in contact with food remove Jewelry and cosmetic items. These points are part of Pre-requisite and food safety standard.
So if I look based on the 3 points mentioned in the food distribution center, it does not talk about removal of Jewelry. Any recommendations on how it should be handled?
Thank you for your help.
