The desire to go out to dinner increases during times of celebration, such as Mother’s Day. This increase in dining contributes to an increase in the potential for foodborne illness. As food workers try to serve the increased volume of customers, there is a temptation to cut corners in order to keep things moving faster. Please take some time to review Tips for Time and Temperature Control (TCS) Foods provided online by Gordon Foods as a quick reminder of key food safety principles to keep in mind, whether preparing in a restaurant or at home.
Hope you have a happy–and safe–Mother’s Day.
