During a recent study in our food service establishments of the common factors that cause foodborne illness, two areas identified as needing more attention were handwashing and keeping food & food contact surfaces protected and clean. Foodsafety.gov has provided a good summary of tips and facts to assist with gaining knowledge and training in this area.  The Clean principle covers:

  • When and how to wash your hands
  • When and how to wash food contact surfaces
  • Where and how to wash fruits & vegetables (but not meat or poultry)

Plus, there’s a short summary video to tie it all together!

Let’s keep it clean!
