Why is Food Handler Safety Training necessary?
- Food safety and sanitation are integral to operating a successful food service. The safety of our food supply is a responsibility shared by producers, sellers, managers and handlers.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year - 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) become ill, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die from contaminated foods or beverages.
- Most foodborne illness outbreaks linked to restaurants are related to unsafe food handling by workers. Studies have shown that food workers often do not handle food safely. Thus, the importance of the training food handlers receive is critical.
- The top 3 causes of foodborne illness attributed to food service handlers are: poor personal hygiene, improper holding temperatures, improper cooling procedures.
