 Can Pepsi branch still eat potato chips well? Expert response


Ruan Guangfeng, director of science and Technology Department of Kexin food and nutrition information exchange center, analyzed the reporter of Beijing News. At present, there is no reliable evidence that the food can spread the new crown, and the potato chips are produced through high-temperature production, so the virus is difficult to survive in such an environment. Even if the outer packaging of the product may contact the virus, the probability of survival is very low. Therefore, you dont have to worry too much. Happy water in feizhai can still be drunk, and delicious chips can be eaten as snacks.

Beverages: no Pepsi Cola and other beverages are produced in the confirmed factory

According to the information of the 128th regular press conference of Beijing epidemic prevention and control on June 21, 8 confirmed cases were found in a food company in Suncun Township, Daxing District, including 2 people who had purchased in Xinfadi market.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia was confirmed in Beijing on the afternoon of June 21st, and the national Pepsi filling plant, including Pepsi Cola Beverage Co., Ltd., which has produced pepsi cola beverages in China, has not found any confirmed cases of new crown pneumonia so far in June 21st.

Potato chips: viruses are hard to survive in high-temperature production

Coke is safe. What about chips? The factories with confirmed cases mainly produce food processing and expanded food, including Leshi chips and other products.

Netizens are worried about whether potato chips will be infected with virus in the production process? On June 21, Ruan Guangfeng, director of science and Technology Department of Kexin food and nutrition information exchange center, told the Beijing news that there is no reliable evidence that food can spread the new crown. Official opinions of all countries and international organizations in the world agree that the new coronavirus is unlikely to spread through food. Most of the production links in modern factories do not need manual contact. They are basically mechanized operation and machine canning. Aseptic operation and sealed packaging are required in the whole process. In addition, in the process of making potato chips, they need to be fried at high temperature, so the virus is difficult to survive in such an environment.

Even if employees have the opportunity to contact, the virus can only fall on the outer packaging, but the survival probability and time of the virus on the food packaging are very low. It is important to know that the outer packaging of potato chips is dry. Even if the employee is exposed to the virus on the outer packaging such as potato chips, it will take a period of time from the production of potato chips to the hands of consumers, and the possibility that the virus can survive and have the ability to infect people is extremely low. Ruan Guangfeng analysis.
