Cleaning and Bactericidal Treatments

Multiple-service containers, equipment, and utensils used in the handling, processing, storing, or transporting of beverages or beverage ingredients shall be thoroughly cleaned after use. They shall be subjected effectively to an approved bactericidal process prior to each usage.The methods used shall be such that soft drinks and their ingredients shall not be contaminated or adulterated. Chemicals used for cleaning and bactericidal treatments shall have labels which identify the contents and stored in an approved manner. All pipelines, apparatus, and containers used in the manufacturing processes shall be thoroughly sanitized at adequate intervals, but never less frequently than once weekly. Apparatus and containers shall be washed and rinsed before sanitization. Fillers shall be cleaned and sanitized at the end of each day’s operation and flushed with potable water before beginning operations. Since accepted industry practice permits sirup to remain in the sirup tanks and lines between periods of processing operations, the sirup tanks and lines will be cleaned and sanitized when emptied, as scheduled by the plant. After scheduled cleaning and sanitation, the sirup tanks and lines shall be flushed with potable water before beginning processing operations. Hot water, chlorine, or equally effective bactericidal agents are permissible for sanitization.
