Using food equipment certified to the latest versions of NSF standards can help you maintain the highest levels of hygiene and safety. For deli slicers, NSF/ANSI Standard 8 2010 is the most current version of this standard. View a list of deli slicers certified by NSF to the 2010 standard. Starting November 12, 2012 only deli slicers certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 8 2010 will be featured on our main NSF listings page.
NSF/ANSI Standard 8 was updated in 2010 by the NSF Joint Committee on Food Equipment, comprised of public health and regulatory officials, food equipment manufacturers and product users, to incorporate the latest food safety and hygiene research. The new standard establishes best practices on cleanability and addresses structural issues caused by components wearing out over time in an effort to reduce the risk of microbial cross-contamination.
Under the new standard, manufacturers must provide detailed instructions on how to clean and sanitize their NSF/ANSI Standard 8 2010 certified deli slicers. The FDA recommends cleaning and sanitizing your deli slicer a minimum of every four hours. For more information, see the FDAs recommendations on cleaning deli slicers.
