Question: How can I validate and verify that tools we are hanging on hooks on our walls (which touch the wall and obviously the hook) are "clean" and meet the requirements of SQF, i.e. NO microbial contamination on the tool, the hook, and the food surface (mixer, extruder, etc.). Basically, how can I hang tools that will be contact with a food surface, and have our operators use the tools multiple times during the day w/o "sanitizing" each and every tool after each and every use?
We are a pet food manufacturer seeking SQF certification and we are stumped on this one.
Thanks for your help.
