Approved Sanitizer Lists - Updated Policy (8/13/13)
In recent discussions with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry, we discovered that EPA has developed a robust efficacy testing process for sanitizers as part of their labeling requirements. In an effort to reduce duplicative services, the Food Safety and Recreational Licensing section will no longer require sanitizers for food contact surfaces to be tested and approved for use in Wisconsin. This change will be reflected during the next code revision. The department will still require that sanitizers meet the Wisconsin Food Code reference 4−501.114.
All sanitizers are required to have an approved EPA label with directions for use unless otherwise approved for use with food contact surfaces or food by FDA.
