I just had some questions regarding clarification on False fingernails & False eyelashes and piercings.
We recently had a refresher on our GMPs at our Pet Treat Manufacturing plant and some of the employees were asking for clarification on a few things. The previous Technical Service Manager/SQF Practitioner had allowed certain exceptions.
- False fingernails – does that include all press on, glue on, and gel type attachments?
Some employees said they were told they could have gel nails as long as they double-gloved…Are there set standard on this?
- False eyelashes – does that include all glue on as well as eyelash extensions?
A couple employees said they were allowed to have eyelash extensions, as they are an extension to our natural eyelashes.
- Piercings – does this include only all removable “visible” piercings, as well as tongue piercings?
I am not sure if there are food safe set standards for this, or if it just a general blanket statement that the company can determine what can be an exception?
Any feedback would be very much appreciated.
