Did you know the average cost of a food product recall is $540,000?

Harmful bacteria, allergens, and insects don’t only result in food safety hazards... they can also harm your reputation. Advanced cleaning solutions, such as industrial HEPA vacuums, can meet your specific food safety hazard and quality demands – limiting cross-contamination in production lines, increasing compliance with the FDA's GMPs and HACCPs, and preventing allergen-related product recalls.
