Buyer Beware: False or Misleading Claims

Updated January 28, 2021

Today literally hundreds of marketers offer food processing equipment on-line and many advertisements state claims such as ‘meets 3A’, ‘conforms to 3A standards’, or the equipment may even include ‘3A’ in a model name or designation. Such references suggest the equipment meets the criteria for 3-A Symbol authorization. To verify whether the supplier is an authorized 3-A Symbol holder, you can easily  search the current list of authorized 3-A Symbol holders  (by company name, equipment type, or authorization number).  Otherwise, the buyer is solely responsible for verifying whether the equipment meets the desired sanitary design and fabrication criteria, see link below.

3-A SSI provides this Buyer Beware list as a service to identify any entities known to infringe on the registered marks of 3-A SSI, including the 3-A Symbol and 3A word mark.   If your company is shown on this list, we strongly encourage you to remove the infringement and notify 3-A SSI promptly in writing
