PPE That Can Contribute to Safe, Efficient Food Production

Some may argue that the use of colors is just as important as the use of words and in some instances colors are opted in place of words. Different colors can induce different emotions and they also can be used as a guide or to distinguish. In the food processing industry it can help reduce the risk of cross-contamination that leads to recalls.

Food processors are regulated by the FDA to ensure that cross contamination is controlled to keep consumers safe. An example of this is red meat zones be colored red, produce zones be colored with green. Another color-coding technique is using blue or black colored PPE with lighter colored food products such as dough products as a darker color is easier to see and trace should a piece of the PPE tear off and fall into the batch.

For a number of facilities, color-coding has become one of the best preventive controls to protect food against direct contamination, cross-contact, and cross-contamination incidences. Color-coding is prized as a preventive control for its ability to easily and quickly communicate information essential for food safety.

MDS has FDA approved PPE popular among the food processing for its variety of colors and performance features.
