)-- Every food producer has to clean to prevent cross contamination of their products with bacteria such as Listeria. Amongst the essential hygiene tools in a food company are cleaning cloths. They however offer a further risk of physical contamination. Consumers’ reaction to finding pieces of cleaning cloth in their food is certainly bad for the food manufacturing and retailing brand owner who will face an expensive product recall bill.
Detectamet is now offering a new metal detectable product that will greatly reduce the chances of this happening. It is possible for a standard metal detector used in the food industry to identify this contamination and then reject the food before it leaves the factory.
The Detectacloth® is a highly absorbent dry wipe that can be used for a multitude of tasks in critical processing areas. This is where undetectable cloths could be lost or forgotten or carelessly discarded to await public cries of horror when they discover the clump of cloth when they chew their food.
“If you detect a cleaning need then Detectacloth will do the job and reduce your company’s risks of food contamination,” explained James Chrismas MD of Detectamet Ltd “It is possible to detect the material at the critical control point of metal detection so it adds validity to a resilient HACCP management system.”
Detectacloth® is the registered trademark for the new addition to the Detectamet range of detectable cleaning and hygiene products. The 254mm x 305mm cloth is supplied in boxes of 100 and incorporates a blue indicator colour within the base netting of the cloth.
A patent is pending on this unique product.
“We have been repeatedly asked for a product like this at exhibitions around the world,” said James Chrismas, “so it is very appropriate that we should be showing Detectacloth to our PPMA Total visitors in September.”
” The Polymeric scrubbing surface creates a multi textured abrasion and absorption effect for efficient cleaning. It not only helps to mitigate the risk of foreign object contamination” he explained,” but it’s also a very effective cleaning cloth that can be used as a wash down cloth, or as a drying towel and for wiping spills amongst many other tasks” For more information contact james.chrismas at detectamet.com
