during an audit I have performed recently at a raw material suppliers site the quality manager (a vetenarian) told me that in hygiene training he is telling that pathogenic Staph aureus is widespread on hairs (every third ??!!). He remembers that he has taken the information from literature some years ago, but unfortunately he could not find them. My search was also withut success.
We could reduce complaints of hairs found in our products (bakery), but there are still several we are obvious not able to eleminate even we have introduced several measures.
In my risk assessment today I have not focussed on Staph aureus in the case of hair contamination. Now I am trying to verify the aove mentioned information. Can somebody assist? Tanks in advance.
