All About Food Contamination Prevention

food contamination preventionSome of us have experienced the (literally) gut-wrenching, awful symptoms brought on by a stomach virus. There’s nothing worse than being knocked down by an illness—you miss work and/or school, not to mention feel horrible. And sometimes, illness is preventable.

Most illnesses are caused by infection in the body, but some are caused by spores, mold, and dust—things that can be controlled and prevented. Sure, your company probably has a cleaning service. However, wiping and hosing down surfaces can only do so much for contamination prevention. Dust, mold and spores can travel through the building’s air system and cause your customers and employees to fall ill.

Luckily, there are some measures you can take to reduce the risk of food contamination. Be sure to implement the following:


  • Have employees take part in a hygiene program. Put up signs that remind employees to wash hands, especially after using the restroom.
  • Encourage the wearing of hair restraints if handling food.
  • Encourage employees to report illnesses and stay home if they are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect all work surfaces
