Food safety is a pressing issue in the restaurant industry. It goes without saying that if you experience a food safety issue (a guest that gets sick, primarily), the damage to your restaurant can be severe.
But you might also wonder? Just how common are food borne illnesses? How dangerous are they really? Who is most at risk?
This information is often included in state-run food safety permit training, and should be included in your food safety training in your restaurant, but it’s information that’s easy to forget. When it comes to food safety, it’s best to always act on the side of caution and to never take chances.
