As an extra precaution, you can use a solution of 1 tablespoon of unscented, liquid chlorine bleach in 1 gallon of water to sanitize washed surfaces and utensils.

Proper Kitchen &
Food Sanitation
Essential Question:
What are some risks associated with improper sanitation practices?
Unit 4
Hand washing prevents the spread of germs that spread illnesses and diseases.

Proper food handling prevents the possible occurrence of food borne illness.
How does washing your hands prevent spreading illnesses?
Feces contains germs like Salmonella, E. coli O157, and norovirus that cause diarrhea, and it can spread respiratory infections like hand-foot-mouth disease.

These kinds of germs can get onto hands after people use the toilet, change a diaper, or after handling raw meats that have invisible amounts of animal feces on them.

1 gram of human feces (weight of a paperclip) can contain one trillion germs.

These germs are transferred by the hands to other objects or humans and cause illnesses.
Why is proper food sanitation so important?
More than 200 diseases are spread through food.

About 75% of the new infectious diseases affecting humans over the past 10 years were caused by bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that started in animals and animal products.

According to the CDC, each year in the United States 76 million people suffer from foodborne disease; 325,000 of them are hospitalized and 5,000 die.
Food Preparation
Even after you have cleaned your hands and surfaces thoroughly, raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs can still spread illness-causing bacteria to other foods—unless you keep them separate.

Use separate cutting boards, plates, and utensils for raw produce and for raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs.
