Dear Simon,
In contamination control we have identified various contaminants that can be a food safety hazard. One of them is "dust from the environment". While doing the Hazard analysis I am noting that unless it is the lamination or slitting or packing or pouching line does this dust presence assume significance.
In case of printing, i am finding that dust in ink introduced from the atmosphere is not likely to be of any consequence. Is that the case? Similar instance like splinter from wooden pallet or flakes of paint from the machine are of no consequence as they do not introduce any hazard? :oops:

regards

Shivendra :dunno:

It's difficult to say with any confidence without seeing your factory. If there is excessive dust you have to question whether your cleaning schedules are as effective as they should be. Refer to section 5.5 Housekeeping and Cleaning for more detail.
