Why are the lower crates empty and with a different colour?

The lower crates are empty and with a different colour.

Rinse water always flushes under crates during cleaning. This poses a risk of the meat and carcasses becoming contaminated with rinsing water.

So, if crates are not on a pallet, make sure that the bottom one in each stack is always empty. Use a striking colour such as yel-low or red for this particular crate. Using plastic sheets in the crates to package the meat also helps prevent rinse water ending up on the meat, and it prevents weight loss from evaporation too.
