What is E.Coli

  • E.coli is a bacteria that is mostly found in cows, but also chickens, deer, sheep, and pigs can carry it.
  • Happens during slaughter when infected intestines or feces come in contact with the carcass or meat.
  • less chance buying intact cuts, usually becomes contaminated when the meat is grinded.
  • can be spread from person to person.
  • Make sure internal meat temperature reaches 160F.
  • Avoid raw meat coming in contact with other foods, known as cross contamination.
  • Not really a cure, but keep hydrated and proper nutrition will help get rid of the bacteria in about a week

4.) Did you have to take any sanitation classes for this job?

No I did not have to take any classes


5.) What all do you do to prepare to cook to prevent cross contamination to stop an E.Coli breakout?

I get out all ingredients and recipes first. Then start measuring ingredients. And to make sure I don't cross contaminate.
