Hi,

 

I work for an ecommerce company that also does 3pl.  We are working on developing our food safety policy and haccp plan, and are building it from the ground up.

 

We only ever fulfill shelf stable, dry, packaged goods, and as such we don’t technically have any food contact surfaces, as the product is never opened, and if it is, it is discarded etc etc according to policy.

 

We had a question about “The Quality of Air and other Gasses”,  As stated we have no compressed air or gas that will ever contact food, or food contact surfaces.  However; our conveyor does use compressed air.  This air will never come into contact with a food product.

 

Section 12.5.6.2 says that in addition to being maintained that it must be “monitored for quality and microbiological purity”.  Does the microbiological purity portion apply to us in this situation?

 

If not, is this covered by our maintenance procedures and documentation?

 

Thanks!
