According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), it is estimated that each year almost 50 million people become sick from foodborne illness, about 130,00 are hospitalized, and 3,000 people die.
The Health Department requires that all employees are certified in how to handle food and know how to properly use gloves.
Gloves can become just as easily contaminated as using your bare hands. Many believe that gloves alone will ensure that the food being prepared will be safe. This is not always the case! To control contamination, there are many procedures to follow, including washing your hands, cleaning equipment and wearing a glove. Everyone needs to contribute to better food safety.
