BioSafe Systems’s SaniDate 15.0 has received a label enhancement for the treatment of process water used in the packing of raw commodities, such as specialty fruits and vegetables. The label is now EPA approved to inhibit Salmonella, E. Coli and Listeria in packing-house wash-water applications.
SaniDate 15.0 was formulated to address the unique needs and challenges found in vegetable and fruit water treatment applications, including the recent changes outlined in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Its concentrated 15% peroxyacetic acid (PAA) formulation utilizes a proprietary package of stabilizing agents to provide packers with a water treatment solution that is effective against human health pathogens in the water, and also inhibits spoilage organisms that reduce produce shelf-life and quality, the company said.
BioSafe Systems has also introduced a dosing and monitoring system, the SaniDate MDS, which provides packers with automated data-logging technology and ensures accurate dosing of SaniDate products. BioSafe’s post-harvest and food safety solutions are approved for conventional and organic packing applications and meet the requirements of Global GAP and FSMA.
