In the Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training Course, the steps involved in cleaning and sanitizing food contact surfaces include using “an appropriate detergent.” Well, What is an “Appropriate detergent for food contact surfaces?” This resource summarizes the key features of detergents and provides guidance for selecting an appropriate one for farm use.

Key Points

  • An unscented, dye-free dish detergent is generally appropriate for food contact surface cleaning.
  • Use just enough to see suds and get the surface visually clean; you know what clean looks like.
  • Rinse off detergents unless the instructions say otherwise.
  • Not sure about a product? Contact the manufacturer.
