What's one of the most frequent restaurant citations by health inspectors? Storing janitorial supplies near food items. To ensure that your cleaning equipment and janitorial supplies never cross contaminate food items, you should store them in a separate area that is completely away from food items or separate them by using partitions. It is best to have a storage space dedicated for the sole purpose and use of janitorial supplies. By Federal Code you are also required not to store cleaning supplies above food items, equipment that contacts food, utensils, table linens, or any single use food item.
