In Section 188.8.131.52. of the AIB Standards it states: Water treatment chemicals used in steam or water that comes into direct or indirect contact with product are approved for food contact. At our facility we manufacture plastic net that holds produce but we do not do any food processing.
Here is my question:
The only thing we add to our water is Water Softener Crystals for the water softening system. Do I have to get food approval documentation for this because hot water is sprayed on to the net to limber it up during manufacturing. Or am I able to simply state N/A.
