NOTICE TO ALL RETAIL FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS
In the New Jersey State Regulations governing Retail Food Establishments N.J.A.C. 8:24-1.1 et seq reference is made to handling of food no less than 20 times.
The CDC warns us to keep hands washed in order to avoid colds and flu and other diseases. The CDC also warns that most food borne disease is caused by improper handling of foods.
So, if we know that Health Authorities are so concerned about hands and handling food why do we ignore good hand hygiene? Did you know that many of the communicable diseases are transmitted from person to person by hands? A common expression used by Health Authorities investigating food borne illnesses is the “fecal oral route” whereby fecal waste is conveyed to the mouth primarily by unwashed hands!
The way you handle food is easily observed by your customers. If they don’t like what they see they will call us to investigate.
