Preventing Food Poisoning

How to prevent food poisoning:

  • Cleaning - antibacterial, sterilising (boiling hot water) etc
  • Cooking temperature - food must be 72 degrees for 2 minutes after cooking, visual check etc
  • Chilling - Fridge = 0-5 degrees, Freezer = -18 degrees

(Domestic freezer = -18 degrees)  (Commercial freezer = -29 degrees)

  • Cross contamination (avoiding it) - use different equipment for different foods e.g. coloured chopping boards. Make sure surfaces are cleaned and food is stored correctly.
