Hello All, 

We manufactured salads and hand pack in a facility maintained at 50 F. We'd like to drop the overall room temperature to 40 F but it will be too cold for production personnel to pack as hands will become cold. 

 

Can they wear thermal gloves underneath the latex gloves? I know this is not specified in any regulation and we need to consider the risks but my question: Is this general industry practice in a cold facility to wear thermal gloves underneath latex gloves and handle food products?

Hi chavalik,

 

Please don't post in multiple Forums. It causes confusion.


Kind Regards,

Another alternative is to use insulated gloves that can be washed as if they were hands. But you need to watch for damage and they make finer tasks more difficult (e.g sorting).
