Non-food contact surfaces maintained, constructed to be smooth, durable, nonabsorbentand easily clearable.(1 pt.)
PUBLIC HEALTH REASON
Non-food contact surfaces of equipment routinely exposed to splash or food debris must be constructed to be smooth, durable, nonabsorbent and easily cleanable. Equipment that is easily cleaned minimizes the presence of microorganisms, moisture and debris, as well as deters the attraction of rodents and insects. Well-designed equipment enhances the ability to keep nonfood-contact surfaces clean.
