hello All,

 

This is in regards to the above mentioned SQF requirement, regarding protective clothing. Could someone provide a guideline as to which I can compare our uniform specifications with. I work in a tuna processing plant and we use ladies dress smocks and overalls for various sections. I cannot seem to find anything for it on the USFDA site. Any help will be appreciated

 

 

Thank you!

It's up to your company what type of dress code you use. It just has to meet the following guidelines:

 

11.2.9.8 All equipment, utensils and protective clothing shall be cleaned after use or at a frequency to control

contamination, and stored in a clean and serviceable condition to prevent microbiological or cross-contact allergen

contamination.

 

At my company, we use cloth smocks as the main part of our uniform. After they are done with it, they put it in a laundry hamper, it gets picked up and laundered, and clean smocks are dropped off. Regardless of what you use, it has to be clean before use and won't cause cross-contamination of any sort. Hope this helps.

Hi, this is in regards to 11.2.9.1 Specifications for equipment, utensils and protective clothing, and procedures for purchasing equipment shall be documented and implemented
 
We already have the ssop for the uniforms, but have trouble getting the specification from the suppliers of the uniform

We have documented a reference to the contract on file for the Uniform Provider as further referenced to 2.3.3 for Contract Service Providers.  We also use cloth type smocks of varying colors in the processing areas.
