топик Food Poisoning. Seven tips for avoiding food poisoning / Пищевое отравление. Семь советов для предотвращения пищевых отравлений на английском языке



  1. Wash your hands. Yes, again! The single most effective way to avoid food poisoning is to wash your hands before preparing or eating food. Whether you are the chef or the guest, it is crucial that your hands are spotless.
  2. Wash your produce. Don’t trust the store to remove harmful chemicals from your fruit and vegetables. Many people handle your produce before you consume it. Surprisingly, the salad bar in a restaurant is a common source of food poisoning.
  3. Handle raw meat with care. Make sure not to contaminate other foods with uncooked meat. Wash utensils that have come into contact with raw meat carefully.
  4. Sanitize your cutting boards. Keep separate cutting boards for your meat and veggies. Sanitize your cutting boards. Wash them with bleach and hot water or put them in the dishwasher.
  5. Invest in a meat thermometer. Different types of meat require different cooking temperatures. Most people don’t know what a turkey should be cooked to. A meat thermometer helps you cook meat so that it is safe to eat.
  6. Keep hot food hot and cold food cold. Bacteria develops quickly when food is left at room temperature. This is why buffets can be dangerous. Food that can spoil should be kept cold or hot.
  7. If in doubt, throw it out. Does the meat smell funny? Does the cheese look off ? When it comes to food, trust your instincts . And, always check best before dates!
