Carometec sanitation equipment designed to aid in FSMA compliance
Carometec, an Iowa company that provides a broad range of quality and sanitation equipment for the food industry, has a number of machines intended to help processors better comply with new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules.

With stricter guidelines likely on the horizon, food processing plants likely will need to seek new, broader solutions for cleaning and sanitation. Carometec offers a number of machines and system that are intended to enable food companies to step up their game in the area of food safety.

Ready for inspections

One likely consequence of the FSMA legislation is increased frequency of inspections, with greater attention being paid to potential food contamination. According to Jeb Supple, executive at Carometec, hygiene will become increasingly important.

“With more inspections to take place in food processing plants, large companies who produce, package and offer food will have to step up their game in the realm of food safety and food handler’s hygiene,” he said.

Sanitation lineup

Among the items in the Carometec roster: automated hand washing systems, automatic boot washers and other food plant sanitation equipment that prevents contamination through standardized and dependable methods. These systems reportedly help prevent cross contamination during the entire receiving, food handling and shipping process.

In addition, the company offers automatic hand sanitizing systems. The machines reportedly help prevent contamination and foodborne illness.
