I work at a pet food & pet shampoo manufacturer. We produce oral care products for your dogs and cats.
These products freshen breath, remove tartar, etc. Its a very low risk product line.
We also manufacture shampoos & conditioners for your pooch.
Manufacture of the oral care line is on the left side of the building and the shampoo on the right.
For SQF, the suggestion is to paint lines designating the oral care area. If personnel are working in this area then all policies and procedures pertaining to oral care will be followed such as handwashing, no jewelry, hair restraints, etc.
If, however, if personnel are working in the shampoo area, 15 feet away, these procedures need not be followed.
It would be extremely obvious to anyone who walked on the floor the designation of the 2 areas.
What would the opinion be of an SQF auditor of this designation of the "food" area and "non-food"area? Has anyone run into this scenario before?
