Addressing Microbial Control Challenges in Fillers of Salad Dressing Processing Plant

AREA OF CONCERN: MICROBIAL CONTROL CHALLENGES IN FILLERS IN A SALAD DRESSING PROCESSING PLANT

ISSUE

Sterilex was contacted by a salad dressing processing plant that was continually experiencing high microbial counts in their fillers.

BACKGROUND

Plant had tried many different cleaners and sanitizers to deal with this issue, and were not successful in finding anything that kept counts low for an extended amount of time.

RECOMMENDATION

Sterilex proposed the following actions:

  • Circulate Sterilex Ultra CIP and Activator through the filler and lines as part of a routine sanitation maintenance program.
  • Foam the outside of the filler with Sterilex Ultra Disinfectant Cleaner and Activator as an additional control.

RESULTS

  • The plant was able to eliminate the presumptive positives, and maintain those results.

“We didn’t see any positives after completing the (Sterilex) treatment” – Chemical Service Representative
