I have a question for those of you sanitarians/QAs that use spiral coolers/freezers.
As part of a cleaning procedure, this company uses 8 of rags (Yes, cotton rags, pieces of towels) embedded in mineral oil to clean/lubricate under the belt. I have never seen such procedure used in spiral coolers (bakery - ready to eat area). As a result of such practice, this company has received multiple complaints when the customer finds those rags with the product. Management claims that that is the only way to do it and even said that the company that builds the spiral cooler recommends that practice.
What are your thoughts? Could any of you share an SSOP on how to clean spiral coolers/freezers?
Thank you in advance.
