I have a customer requesting that we manufacture for him a plastic bag for food packaging with a latex tubing. Do we need to implement a decontamination schedule for all the equipment that was in contact with this allergen?

I've seen this sitting here unanswered - I don't know...is latex packaging legal?


Assuming it's OK in Canada to produce what your customer wants, I would think you'd need to prove this process will not contaminate all the non-latex packaging.  This may include cleaning and testing...but I don't know, I've never heard of such a thing.
