Dear Friends,

My organization is in stage of implementation HACCP Standards. An consultant recommends to immediate stop supply pest control in Hotel ?s kitchen cause food may observe toxic.
I want to know what are the alternatives? Is there any chemical for controlling pests are allowed in food production area?

Please need your help ?

Thanks

Not being unhelpful but since you already have a consultant who obviously knows the situation in your kitchen, your current practice as well as local food laws and implementation of GMP better than us outsiders, you should go back to him for a detail answer.

If you cannot accept his answer, come back and we will try and see/assess if it is reasonable or not.

I spoke with our Pest Controller 2 weeks ago.

They use non-toxic baits in the external bait boxes as they are not allowed by law to use poison baits outdoors any more. In the event that activity is found they will begin a toxic bait treatment until activity stops or after 3 weeks(I think).

Non-toxic baits may be what you need in the kitchen areas. If they show signs of activity then you might have to set traps until activity stops

Hope this shines some light for you

May probably be a case of the Food Laws around your establishment. From past experience Bait Boxes around the external areas of the facility, complete with MSDS/COSHH assessments of the risks involved in the chemicals used. Pest control within the Interior mostly involved Insectocutors (not placed over work surfaces). Glue traps were also an addition around the Kitchen/Catering facility.
