Hello,

 

Can produce be washed without a rinse step post chlorine wash? If yes, what is the allowable upper limit for free chlorine from a regulatory perspective? Rinsing produce in potable water without sanitizer allows cross contamination with pathogens. 

 

Thanks

Do you mean hypochlorite or ???

 

Product is ? RTE ?

 

I guess it may depend on where you are from a Regulatory POV, eg IIRC there are various "no-rinse" commercial  chemicals for  "sanitizing"  (specific) products which are  (EPA I think) approved in USA. Some are discussed in previous threads on this Forum.

 

I recall many years ago using a commercial blend of NaClO/NaBrO for raw seafood. Cost a small fortune. :smile:


Kind Regards,

It also depends on how you are selling the product ie: is it organic? This will put further limits on produce and the allowable ppm of sodium hypochlorite and will require a rinse.
