How to Sanitize Food Carrying Containers: Preventing the spread of Disease and Cross Contaminants by Containers Used to Move Food

This is an instructional course for personnel responsible for establishing and maintaining standard procedures for washing and sanitizing containers that are used to move food.  Preventing diseases from spreading due to poor sanitation practices in food transportation processes is critical for companies moving food from one place to another.  Vicarious liability laws put the food carrier directly in the path of food safety and quality requirements being established throughout the food industry.  Establishing good preventive sanitation practices is a basic requirement needed to protect suppliers, customers and the public.


The course covers both short (harvest to packing house) and longer (harvest to retail) types of transportation and includes sanitation practices for devices commonly used to move food from one place to another:  Trucks, trailers, shipping containers, pallets, bins, trays, etc.


The course includes downloadable standards, controls, practices, forms and documents to help companies quickly establish their own procedures that are in line with upcoming FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules.
