Salmonella outbreak prevention tips

Posted on May 11, 2015 9:19 am under Food Defects

Salmonella infection is caused by consuming food products contaminated with salmonella bacteria. Salmonella bacteria thrive in the gastrointestinal tract of both humans and animals, and can be shed through feces.

To prevent salmonella outbreaks, remember these basic tips in handling food in the kitchen:

  • Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the toilet, disposing pet feces, touching your pet, or changing diapers
  • When storing food, always separate raw food products from other food to avoid contamination
  • Do not allow cooked or ready-to-eat food touch any unwashed surfaces (plates, knives, etc.) that previously came in contact with a raw food item

No matter how safely you handle your food at home, you may still be at risk of salmonella infection due to contaminated food items produced by negligent food manufacturers.
