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!
