Subpart B--Current Good Manufacturing Practice
SEC 507.14 Personnel.
(a) Plant management must take all reasonable measures and precautions to ensure that:
(1) Any person who, by his own acknowledgement, by medical examination, or by supervisory observation, is shown to have, or appears to have any illness, open skin lesion, or other source of abnormal microbial contamination by which there is a reasonable possibility of animal food, animal food-contact surfaces, or animal food-packaging materials becoming contaminated, is excluded from any operations which may be expected to result in such contamination until the condition is resolved;
(2) Personnel have been instructed to report such health conditions to their supervisors;
(3) All persons working in direct contact with animal food, animal food-contact surfaces, and animal food-packaging materials conform to hygienic practices while on duty to the extent necessary to protect against contamination of animal food. The methods for maintaining cleanliness include:
(i) Maintaining adequate personal cleanliness;
(ii) Washing hands thoroughly (and sanitizing if necessary to protect against contamination with undesirable microorganisms) in an adequate hand-washing facility before starting work and at any other time when the hands may have become soiled or contaminated;
(iii) Removing all unsecured jewelry and other objects that might fall into animal food, equipment, or containers;
(iv) Storing clothing or other personal belongings in areas other than where animal food is exposed or where equipment or utensils are washed; and
(v) Taking any other necessary precautions to protect against contamination of animal food, animal food-contact surfaces, or animal food-packaging materials with microorganisms or foreign substances.
(b) Personnel responsible for identifying sanitation failures or animal food contamination should have a background of education or experience, or a combination thereof, to provide a level of competency necessary for production of clean and safe animal food. Animal food handlers and supervisors should receive appropriate training in proper food handling techniques and food-protection principles and should be informed of the danger of poor personal hygiene and unsanitary practices.
