Hi Everyone! My first post here so please forgive me if I leave something important out. I am also brand new to the food safety world and have only been in this position (PCQI) since April of this year. We are cGMP certified if its relevant.
My small facility makes a tobacco and nicotine free dip and pouches. We currently use a drum that has a pump set up that takes the liquid flavoring from the drum, pumps it through tubing, and transports it to each machine that then puts it onto the pouches.
I am struggling with how to clean the tubing that the liquid flavoring flows through. We can unhook the drum and flush it out with water but I am looking for a sanitizer/cleaner that could/would clean the line as well since it is a food contact item per say.
Does anyone know of a cleaning solution and a sanitizing solution that would possibly work for this tubing?
Thanks for any input!
