Food Service And Safety
Bacteria, viruses, and parasites ingested through contaminated foods can enter the human body, resulting in foodborne illnesses. Toxins and certain fungi also can cause foodborne illnesses when accidentally ingested, while other chemical and physical hazards, such as cleaning solutions and small pieces of broken glass, can cause serious injury as well. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately one in every six Americans (roughly 48 million people) experiences a foodborne illness each year. Of that number, the CDC says 128,000 require hospitalization and 3,000 die.3 Infants and young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems particularly are vulnerable to contracting foodborne illnesses.
Household Germ Practise
The microorganisms were found on kitchen equipment and tools that come in regular contact with potentially hazardous foods including meat, poultry, and seafood.
• Refrigerator drawers: If possible, remove the drawer from the refrigerator. Then, remove all the food inside and wash the bin thoroughly with a clean sponge or cloth
and mild dish detergent mixed with warm water. Rinse the bin with tap water and dry it. If the drawer has an odor, wash with 1 to 2 tablespoons of baking soda mixed
with 1 quart of water, and then wipe dry. Repeat monthly.
Fungi: Mold and Yeast
Molds are fungi that are transported by air, water, or insects. Although they're visible with the naked eye, they have branches and roots that can grow deep into the food. Some molds can cause allergic reactions and respiratory issues. Under the right conditions, several types of mold can produce illness-causing toxins. Molds prefer warm temperatures; however, they easily can grow in your fridge. They like salty and sugary foods, including cured meats and jam.
Although the saying goes "when it doubt, throw it out," not all moldy foods need to be tossed. Hard cheeses and hard produce such as carrots, bell peppers, and cabbage don't have to be discarded. To remove the mold, cut off at least 1 inch around and below the mold spot. After cutting, use fresh wrap to cover it.
Yeast can spoil food quickly and result in food with an alcoholic smell or taste. The yeast may appear as a pink discoloration or slime. They tend to grow well in acidic foods such as jams, honey, and fruit. If a client suspects that a food contains yeast, the entire container should be discarded.
The following three main food safety practices can prevent all the illnesses described above. The tips provided below can be incorporated into education sessions with clients.
The transfer of microorganisms from one surface to the other easily can occur when using the same cutting board and surface to prepare raw and ready-to-eat food. It also can occur if raw meat is stored above ready-to-eat or cooked food in the refrigerator. To prevent cross-contamination, remind clients to wash cutting boards thoroughly with soap and water between handling raw meat and ready-to-eat food. They also can use two separate cutting boards. Synthetic cutting boards can be cleaned in a washing machine and should be changed if they become warped or have many cracks and crevices. When storing food in the refrigerator, raw meats should be placed on the bottom shelves, while ready-to-eat and cooked foods should be stored on top.
Control Time and Temperature
Foods that remain in the time-temperature danger zone between 41° F and 135° F for more than four hours can begin harboring pathogenic microorganisms. As a result, remind clients to refrigerate foods immediately when they get home from the market. Defrost foods in the refrigerator in advance and not on the countertop overnight. They also should cook foods until they reach their proper minimum internal cooking temperatures. Leftover foods shouldn't be kept at room temperature for more than two hours. Leftovers should be tossed after one hour when the temperature is 90° F or above.
Good Personal Hygiene
Clients always should handle food with clean hands and perform proper hand washing. They also should wash their hands after using electronic devices (eg, cell phones, laptops, desktop computers, iPads, etc), using the restroom, and performing other tasks such as taking out the garbage. If the person preparing food is sick with symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, and sore throat with fever, they should avoid handling food until symptoms have resolved for at least 24 hours.
Food safety practices are used in many areas of dietetics. Below are three RDs in different areas of practice who incorporate food safety into their work.
