CVR Uniforms earns Food Service Laundering certification

8 March 2018


The Textile Rental Association (TRSA) has certified CVR Uniforms of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania with its Hygienically Clean Food Service designation, reflecting the company’s commitment to best management practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.

The certification confirms the laundry’s dedication to compliance and processing linens and garments using BMPs as described in its quality assurance documentation, the focal point for Hygienically Clean inspectors’ evaluation of critical control points (CCPs) that minimize risk.

Inspections also evaluate practices relevant to handling and processing textile products used in food manufacturing and processing establishments for adherence to US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) directives. Introduced in January 2016, Hygienically Clean Food Service brought to linen and uniform service laundering in North America the international cleanliness standards used worldwide by the Certification Association for Professional Textile Services and the European Committee for Standardisation.

“Congratulations to CVR Uniforms on their certification,” said Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO. “This achievement proves their dedication to building their customers’ confidence that their laundry takes every step possible to prevent human illness.”
