Please be assured that the Elsie’s family of brands has robust hygiene, food handling and storage practices for our products that are intended to maintain their integrity and ensure their safe use. In light of COVID-19, not only are we following those robust practices, they are now receiving an even greater focus.
Elsie’s Food Handling Practices
Currently, both the FDA and CDC consider the risk of transmission through food to be very low. In fact, the FDA has stated that they are not aware of any reports of transmission of COVID-19 through food, and the CDC has said that there is no evidence of food supporting transmission of COVID-19.
We are in frequent communication with all of our suppliers to confirm they are working in accordance with the federal, state and local food safety laws, as well as recent guidance and precautions issued by the CDC. As a company, we take food safety very seriously and continually monitor to ensure all of our facilities are practicing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's) as defined by the FDA which include, but are not limited to, sanitizing, hand washing/drying, wearing gloves and hair restraints.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and hope that you will find this information useful and reassuring. We encourage you to continue to seek out credible sources, such as the CDC, regarding this topic. The CDC web site is located at www.cdc.gov
