Each plant shall be equipped with adequate sanitary facilities and accommodations.

All equipment should be so installed and maintained as to facilitate the cleaning of the equipment and of all adjacent spaces.

All operations in the receiving, inspecting, transporting, segregating, preparing, manufacturing, packaging, and storing of food shall be conducted in accordance with adequate sanitation principles.

Storage and transportation of finished food shall be under conditions that will protect food against physical, chemical, and microbial contamination as well as against deterioration of the food and the container.
