Food Safety Month

September has been declared Food Safety Month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Although there are many strict laws regarding the production and preparation of food, foodborne illnesses may still occur when bacteria and other pathogens contaminate food.  Therefore, it is extremely important to take proper precautions when handling food items.

The Food and Drug Administration recommends some safety tips to avoid foodborne illnesses including:

  •     Make sure you wash your hands and surfaces where food will be prepared often
  •        Keep raw meats separated from other foods
  •     Make sure that your foods are cooked at the correct temperatures to kill bacteria
  •     Refrigerate foods quickly

These safety tips reduce the likelihood that you will become ill due to a food you consume.  It is important to remember that bacteria can spread.  Thus, it is best to avoid it spreading in the first place.  Simple habits such as washing hands with soap after using the restroom, changing diapers and touching pets; cleaning can lids; and scrubbing vegetables are all ways to kill bacteria.  It is also recommended to use a different cutting board for meats and vegetables and use a food thermometer to ensure that bacteria is not spread through uncooked meat.

Food poisoning can be a serious health issue that can result in a lengthy illness, or sometimes even death.  The illnesses that can result from foodborne pathogens can result in hospitalization, time spent away from work, and high medical bills.  Depending on the circumstances, if you have suffered from food poisoning that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to bring a legal claim.  Contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can advise you of your legal rights. Call Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP at 212-571-7171.
