10 food safety tips for commercial kitchens.

Ensure everyone is properly trained.
All managers and staff must have proper food safety knowledge. The health inspector will ask questions and a restaurant can be fined for showing inadequate knowledge of safe food handling practices.

Hands must be washed.
One of the main culprits of foodborne illnesses is person-to-person contact resulting from dirty hands. Restaurant employees must regularly and thoroughly wash their hands in order to protect customers and the restaurant from a food poisoning outbreak.

Produce must be washed.
Fresh produce is not always cooked before serving so washing by hand is the only way to remove any bacteria that may be on the surface.

Your GI tract constitutes a series of organs connected to each other to form a long, hollow tube from the mouth to the anus. While most food borne illnesses tend to be acute, which means they occur abruptly and last for a short period, there are some instances in which a food borne illness may be severe and cause debilitating complications.
