(1) Rooms and compartments in which any raw material, packaging, ingredient supplies, or dairy products are handled, manufactured, packaged, or stored must be so designed, constructed, and maintained as to assure desirable room temperatures and clean and orderly operating conditions free from objectionable odors and vapors. Enclosed bulk milk receiving rooms when present must be separated from the processing rooms by a partition. Rooms for receiving can milk must be separated from the processing rooms by a partition (partial or complete) by suitable arrangement of equipment or by allowing enough distance between receiving and processing operations to avoid possible contamination of milk or dairy products during manufacturing and handling. Processing rooms must be kept free from equipment and materials not regularly used.

(2) The supply rooms used for the storing of packaging materials, containers, and miscellaneous ingredients must be kept clean, dry, orderly, free from insects, rodents, and mold and maintained in good repair. Items stored therein must be adequately protected from dust, dirt, or other extraneous matter and so arranged on racks, shelves, or pallets to permit access to the supplies and cleaning and inspection of the room. Insecticides, rodenticides, cleaning compounds, and other non-food products must be properly labeled and segregated, and stored in a separate room or cabinet away from milk, dairy products, ingredients, or packaging supplies.
