Microorganisms can get into food by food handlers using dirty utensils, cutting boards, slicers, work counters and other surfaces that directly come into contact with food. Food contact surfaces must be kept clean so they are not a source of food contamination. To prevent bacteria from growing on food contact surfaces they must be cleaned and sanitzed after each use or once every four hours when used in a constant production line bases. During manual warewashing of equipment and utensils, all soaps and abrasive detergents must be rinsed from food contact surfaces so sanitzing agents can be properly applied and be effective..
