Contamination vs. Cross-contamination

Contamination

  • The presence of harmful substances not originally present in the food

Cross-contamination

  • When harmful substances are transferred from one surface or food to another


3 food safety hazards

3 Food Safety Hazards

  • Physical

  • Chemical

  • Biological


Physical food safety hazard

Physical Food Safety Hazard

  • Most common, but least likely to cause illness

  • Consists of foreign objects that accidentally get into food

    • Ex. hair, dirt, glass, etc.


Chemical food safety hazard

Chemical Food Safety Hazard

  • Can include the following chemicals

    • Pesticides

    • Food additives

    • Preservatives

    • Cleaning supplies

    • Toxic metals that leach from cookware and equipment


Biological food safety hazards

Biological Food Safety Hazards

  • Cause 90% of food borne illness

  • Includes bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi

  • Also, certain foods (plants, mushrooms and fish) can carry harmful toxins


Biological food safety hazards continued

Biological Food Safety Hazards continued

  • Bacteria

    - Found everywhere

    - Reproduce by cellular division (double every 20 minutes)

    - Need moisture to reproduce

    i.e. e. coli, salmonella

  • Virus

    - Need a living host to reproduce

    i.e. hepatitis A

  • Parasites

    - need a living host to survive

    i.e. tapeworm, trichinosis


Pufferfish

Pufferfish

  • Fugu- Japanese word for pufferfish

  • Fugu can be lethally poisonous due to a toxin called tetradotoxin.

  • The fish must be carefully prepared to remove the toxic part and avoid contaminating the meat.

  • Fugu chefs must also earn a license to prepare and sell fugu to the public. This involves a two- or three-year apprenticeship.

  • The licensing examination process consists of a written test, a fish-identification test, and a practical test, as well as preparing and eating the fish.

  • Only about 35% of the applicants pass.[6]

Food safety your notes should focus on underlined information

Keep food out of the Temperature Danger Zone

40-140
