Food Processing Plants – Why Add to Your Disinfecting & Sanitizing Service?

Food processing plants already have a stringent sanitizing plan in place. Beside the fact that they go through audits at any time, conscientious Sanitarians and QA Managers have sanitation in place at all times to ensure food safety.

So, why would they need to add something else? Here are just a couple reasons:

Emergency Service: Nobody could have predicted what’s happening right now. Which means, we can’t predict whether or not it could happen again. Should something like this – or anything close to it – occur again, you can have the pest management partner that is there for you anyway come in and disinfect at a 99.99% efficacy rate on hard, non-porous surfaces. And we never know when a food borne outbreak could arrive at a plant’s doorstep either. Should additional  disinfection be needed, we’re already here for you. Pest prevention is an important part in every step of the food processing chain. It’s convenient to have that company be able to help with emergency disinfecting that is already familiar with where it’s needed. What better partner than your pest prevention experts?

Coronavirus or Other Pathogens: Maybe an employee tested positive. Maybe you found a food borne pathogen during environmental testing. Whatever the reason, a full-service disinfecting treatment can help you start with a clean slate. Your normal sanitation plan can take over from there, but at least you will know your plant is starting fresh. And it may as well be from Western Pest – a company that develops and employs Pest Prevention Pre-requisite Programs, which work hand-in-hand with sanitation.

As a pest management company, Western emphasizes training, hazard analysis, cGMPs, and preventive controls for ongoing pest prevention at your food processing plant. We start by thoroughly inspecting the facility, both inside and out, and providing customized solutions for individual needs. So, food plant managers already know they can trust us with the pest control in their facility. Now they can trust us with a full disinfecting treatment.

Western PurClean™ uses a product rated “no rinse required on food contact surfaces,” category D2, by NSF International; meaning it is approved for use in commercial food process areas without the need to wash/rinse the area with water after it’s applied. That, while killing 99.99% of the almost 50 bacteria, fungi, and viruses listed on the product label including H1N1 Swine Flu, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes and other food borne or pathogenic microbes on hard, porous surfaces. The most important thing: it’s included on the EPA’s “List N” of products that meet their criteria for use against the causal agent of Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2.

So, while food processing plants are probably as stringent about sanitizing and disinfecting as any other industry, a clean slate is a good idea for all industries right now. Contact your trusted pest control partner and trust them with a disinfecting treatment. Call Western Pest Services about Western PurClean™ today.
