This time of year, quite a few restaurant menus begin to include special desserts, meats, drinks, etc. that are not usually offered in their facility. Those foods need to be from an approved source–just as during other times of the year. To help clarify this topic, we are announcing the 13th episode of our Food Safety Partnership Panel video entitled Safe Food Sources , which emphasizes the need to be on alert for any unauthorized meat surfacing, such as that from illegal back woods slaughter.
Each of our Partnership Panels (covering a variety of topics) is available on the Environmental Health Food Service page of our website at www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.org and run approximately 30 minutes in length. These can be used for review and training as applicable.
Enjoy a Happy and Safe Holiday Season–and always think Food Safety!
