Our facility uses a mixing station for automatic dilution of our cleaner and sanitizer. As usual, in the course of a recertification audit, Auditor C has issues that Auditors A & B (from prior years) did not have. This year Auditor C wants to know how we confirm that chemical concentrations are correct. QUESTION: How do you check cleaners that are automatically diluted for proper concentration? I see test strips for sanitizers but not for cleaners.
Furthermore, Auditor C stated that no information was available saying that the chemicals (we use) are approved for use. The chemicals that I am using are from a company that markets their product specifically for the food service. The supplier's product sheet clearly states that the product is for the food service. Auditor C says, " yes - but WHO told the supplier that it is ok for food use?"
Has anyone else had any experience with Audior C?
BTW our facility is considered low risk. We make a food contact product and have no food stored or processed in our facility.
