We do not allow for unapproved chemicals to be in the building. They need either CFIA or FDA approval or letter of no objection, and paperwork needs to be on file to show that. We don't just go off the sales rep said so, or its on the label (usually from China and "HAACP approved").
Does anyone else follow this same ruling? And what do you do when you a) cannot find a food safe / approved product and b) during full construction do you wave this requirement, or contractors need to give you a list of items they will be using.
Or does your rule JUST apply to anything within food contact? And if so how do you keep track of which chemicals in your facility are approved for use and which ones aren't approved for food contact use?
Thank you in advance.
And if anyone has PVC Primer and Cement that is approved - please pass on the name :)
