So, In SQF 7.2 it says:
18.104.22.168 "Waste disposal equipment, collection bins, and storage areas shall be maintained in a serviceable condition and cleaned and sanitized regularly so as not to attract pests and other vermin"
So the non-conformance in my audit is that outside trash containers were not covered. I have large dumpsters that are covered, but we also use labeled barrels outside in certain areas then move these to the dumpsters. Do these need to be covered? Does the code mandate this? The auditor insisted that ALL trash containers should be covered.
