Drain cleaning & Listeria prevention quick course
There are many opportunities for contamination with Listeria during the process of food
production. As Listeria thrives in stagnant water, it is important to address areas where water
may be trapped during food processing.
Why worry about pH in drains?
There is always water in the P-Trap, which serves as a harbor to Listeria. Develop an environmental cleaning and sanitizing program that includes plant drains.
