The actual certification, NSF/ANSI/3-A, signifies that these saw blades meet the hygiene requirements for the design of meat and poultry processing equipment and for handheld tools used in meat and poultry processing. The USDA certification further enhances the company’s position in its global offering of food processing blades and ensures that our products meet the strict food safety standards of our customers.


At Starrett, we take the safety of our products and manufacturing processes very seriously. We understand that our customers rely on our band saw blades to be not only reliable and efficient, but also safe to use. That’s why we ensure that all the oils we use in our band saw blade manufacturing processes are carefully selected and tested for safety. The oils we use are mineral-based and are chosen for their excellent lubricating properties, which help to reduce heat and friction during the cutting process. These oils are also free from harmful contaminants, ensuring that our blades remain clean and free from residue that could  compromise their performance or safety.
