Does anyone have an approved floor sweep compound that can be used for cleaning the warehouse. Is there such a thing?  I'm in an ambient warehouse that handles no food, just disposables such as plastic utensils in sealed cases.

Sorry, approved for what? As soon as your warehouse doesn't handle food - does it matter what kind of floor sweep you use?

I wasn't sure what the regulations say.  I'm trying to get a food safety audit done. There is a requirement that approved for food chemicals must be used.

Your profile summary doesn't say where you are, so it's difficult to know what regulations might be applicable ;)

Nonetheless, full direct food-contact suitability seems to me to be a bit OTT for floor cleaning in a facility that doesn't actually handle any food, where goods are at best food contact and in any case are sealed.
Nonetheless I'd have a chat with a cleaning chemical supplier as they'll almost certainly be able to recommend something, and provide guidance on method of use etc. Again it's difficult to know who to recommend as we're not sure where you're based though.
