The care of food that should be taken, as told by the solicitors in Keith
Food poisoning is caused by food being contaminated. It is contaminated by bacteria and viruses and sometimes even chemicals. Bacteria thrive in the right conditions, and these should be avoided at all costs. Just some of the things food outlets should do are:
- Avoid cross contaminating foods by cleaning knives and other utensils every time you change from preparing one food to another
- Discard any frozen food that has been thawed but not used
- Basic hygiene, keeping hands, aprons, work surfaces, utensils, in fact anything that comes in contact with the food, clean
- Ensure that foods served fresh such as salads and fruits, are well cleaned
- Make sure the food is properly cooked, heat will kill many of the bacteria
- Store foods at the correct temperatures
- If food is already cooked, don’t keep it warm for long periods
- Do not use out of date food
If you have become ill because of someone elses negligence then you may be able to make an injury claim, using the solicitors in Keith to help you.
There are some foods that are more susceptible to bacteria and viruses
There are some foods that need extra care because they are more susceptible to becoming contaminated. Meats and dairy products are among them, but its is not always possible to tell immediately that something is wrong with them. Shell fishes and ready meals are something else to watch out for, but the best way is to discard any food that does not smell or look right, as it is probably contaminated.
