On the 4th of July holiday weekend, millions of Americans will be gathering with family and friends with tasty, patriotic dishes in backyard grilling parties or picnics. However, nothing ruins a fun gathering faster than spoiled food and stomach cramps. Remember, there are certain food safety tips and procedures that must be followed to prevent foodborne illness.
Food handler safety does not only affect the sales and continued patronage of an establishment, but also public safety. Food safety education and training is essential to raising awareness about foodborne diseases and how deadly pathogen spreads. Thus, many public health agencies require food safety training and/or certification for restaurant managers and sometimes workers.
