All About Food Safety

By: Johnathan Clark

Why be safe?

Without food safety, many foods would provide several deadly diseases such as Hepatitis A. and Salmonella. Poultry and all other meats would be completely inedible. Our mortality rate would increase drastically and illness-related deaths would skyrocket!

Food safety has many pros and absolutely no cons, why wouldn't you choose to be safe? Many people in earlier times died from not using safety. Would you want your children to die early?

Listeria monocytogenes and You

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that causes Listeriosis. Listeriosis primarily infects the central nervous system (meningitis,brain abscess, cerebritis). It is usually transmitted through contaminated food products.

Diagnosis for this disease requires isolation of the organism from the blood. Treatment includes antibiotics, mostly ampicillin and gentamicin. Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, and convulsions.

What can you do?

MAKE SURE YOU WASH YOUR HANDS! Washing hands can be the difference between enjoying a family meal and serving death to your family through food poisoning! NEVER wear jewelry when cooking. Wear a hat to ensure your hair does not contaminate the food.

Never cook for your family when you are sick. It is so easy to contaminate food when you are sick. Always wear an apron when you are cooking to avoid harm to yourself. Make sure there are no animals near you when cooking otherwise they may contaminate the food.
