Contamination Risks from Portable Electronics in Food Processing

Food processors have made significant investments in personal disinfection. Hand hygiene is crucial, but additional steps, such as clothing and shoe changes, are becoming standard in HACCP plans.


Unfortunately, there is an entire category of items that consistently slip past these critical control points, immediately recontaminating hands and posing a cross-contamination risk for as long as they are on the production floor.

These items are RT radios, tablets, smartphones and other portable devices.
