Label Sanitizer Buckets


This week’s tip is about labeling sanitizer buckets. It’s important to understand that even if your red buckets are only used for sanitizer, they still need to be labeled in writing. Typically, red buckets come pre-labeled, but over time the writing wears off. The FDA Food Code specifically states that any container with chemicals needs to be labeled with the common name.
