I am in the process of developing and implementing SQF Storage & Distribution, we are a third party cold storage company. We never have exposed meat product (vegetables at times cross dock), we may at times repack primary packaged products into new secondary packaging for customers and/or relabel primary packaging.
The master sanitation schedule reflects cleaning tasks to what we do, my question is how do I ensure the effectiveness of the cleaning? Would ATP swabs be the best approach? For allergen spills would Protein ATP swabs be the route?
Due to the infrequency of spills and relabeling or re-boxing, the ATP swabs tend to expire before we go through them. (which is costly)
Is a visual inspection adequate in these cases?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
