Stating The Obvious on Foodborne Illness

This just out from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention: More than half of all foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States are associated with restaurants, delis, banquet facilities, schools and other institutions. The CDCP’s Environmental Health Specialists Network announces four new publications on restaurant food handling practices that have been linked with foodborne illness outbreaks in restaurant settings. These publications are on the following topics: ground beef handling, handling of leafy greens,chicken cross-contamination, and sick food workers. Food safety programs and the restaurant industry can use these findings to develop effective interventions to improve food safety in restaurants.
