AREA OF CONCERN: RTE DELI PLANT EXPERIENCING LISTERIA CHALLENGES AND ASSOCIATED SLIPS/FALLS
Sterilex was contacted by a large RTE deli facility due to Listeria concerns coming from the floor of their processing area. The current granulated dry floor treatment had also contributed to multiple employee slips and subsequent injuries due to the large granulation size.
The current dry floor treatment was placed into boot mats as well as broadcast onto sensitive areas of the processing floor. The floor was swabbed as part of the site’s food safety program.
Sterilex proposed the following actions:
- Conduct a trial utilizing Sterilex Ultra Powder in a preselected area of the plant. Monitor the environmental swabs in this area as well as any subsequent safety issues.
- 0 positive swabs during the one month trial
- 0 safety issues attributed to the powder
- Plant has made plans to expand use to other areas within the facility
