Food safety
RAISING THE BAR:
new guidelines from the FDA
Recent foodborne illness outbreaks have been
associated with the accumulation of food soils and
disease-causing microorganisms on areas of commercial
deli slicers that are difficult to clean and sanitize.
These outbreaks have resulted in serious illnesses and
hospitalizations.
There are many seams created between the numerous
adjoining parts and components of a typical deli slicer.
Sealants and gaskets are often used to seal these
seams. These seams can become worn, degraded or
removed as a result of the heavy use and cleaning
regimens to which deli slicers are subjected.
As these seals and gaskets become degraded, spaces
can be created that can trap debris and moisture, which
can lead to areas that may not be adequately cleaned
and sanitized under normal cleaning methods.
DELI
BY ANDY NELSON
WITH THE CLOSURE OF SELF-SERVE HOT AND COLD FOOD BARS
early in the pandemic, supermarkets and other retailers pivoted their
foodservice programs to safely serve food and meet the needs of their
customers
Many supermarkets started from scratch in building safer hot to-go
programs and had concerns throughout the process, said Tami Olson,
director of national accounts-retail, for Alto-Shaam, Menomonee
Falls, Wis.
Alto-Shaam worked closely with its retail customers to help them
quickly launch hot pre-prepared food programs with just a few pieces
of cooking, merchandising and display equipment.
" Since then, some retailers have reinvigorated self-service bars, but
many continue to build on pre-packaged to-go program success, "
Olson said. " Alto-Shaam has been proud to support all types of deli food
programs with safe, quality, and reliable equipment. "
COVID, of course, has been just one extra headache instore delis
couldn't have foreseen just a few years ago.

During routine inspections of retail
and foodservice establishments:
* Pay special attention to commercial deli slicers.
Examine the equipment for degraded, defective or
worn parts.
* If there are any signs of cracks, chips, deep scratches
or loss of adhesion or if any seam or part is found
defective or damaged, have the food establishment
remove the slicer from service until repaired or
replaced.
* Stress that establishment managers need to
contact the slicer manufacturer for repairs and
maintenance; all repairs should be performed by the
manufacturer's authorized service representatives.
* Check that the retail or foodservice establishments
are following the manufacturer's instructions for
cleaning and maintenance.
Examples of commercial deli slicer components
inaccessible under normal cleaning conditions:
* Ring Guard Mount: Food soil accumulation at the
ring guard mount.
* Blade Guard: Food soil accumulation on the inside of
the blade guard at the white plastic piece.
* Slicer Handle: Surfaces under the slicer handle
can accumulate food soil and debris and require
monitoring to prevent build-up.
