We recently had a customer audit and received a non-conformance for not using antimicrobial food grade lubricant. We use H1 food grade lubricant. The auditor stated that we should be using an antimicrobial type. I am not aware of any regulation or code requirement and our maintenance manager is not keen on switching lubricants. Anyone familiar with antimicrobial lubricants? Benefits or cons to them that I should be aware of?
If it helps ... manufacturing peanut butter, so no water in the process and minimal water usage during sanitation.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
