That is why no bare hand contact with ready -to -eat fo od is so important. ➢ Food service managers are required by law to monitor the health of their employees. ➢ Food managers and handlers are required by law to report certain illnesses to the Department of Health. ➢ Viruses can live on surfaces, such as refrigerat or door handles and food preparation tables, for up to 48 hours. ➢ Viruses are responsible for more than 50% of all foodborne illness outbreaks (symptoms include acute diarrhea, nausea and vomiting) in the United States. ➢ Some bacteria produ ce toxins (poisons ) that cannot be destroyed by cooking or freezing. ➢ M illion s of Americans suffer from a foodborne illness each year. ➢ You can prevent the spread of foodborne illness by following good hygienic practices and not working with food or clean dishware when you a re ill or have been in close contact with someone who is ill.
