User: What are some illnesses and ailments caused by lack of food safety? How might these problems be prevented?





Weegy: Because even though food is inspected, it can contain bacteria that can cause illness if it is not handled properly. Meat, poultry, fish, eggs, fruits, and vegetables may contain bacteria. [ These bacteria are present throughout our environment. At the right temperature, in just a few hours, small amounts of bacteria that you can't see, smell, or taste can multiply to dangerous levels on food and cause foodborne illness, sometimes called food poisoning. Common symptoms of many foodborne illnesses are flu-like and include diarrhea, which prevents the body's absorption of the nutrients in food. ............. Food Safety Tips : Keep it safe, refrigerate. Refrigerate foods you'll use quickly. Freeze raw meat or poultry you can't use in 1 or 2 days. Freezer should register 0°F; refrigerator, 40 °F. Don't thaw food on the kitchen counter. Bacteria multiply rapidly at room temperature. Wash hands before preparing food. Wash hands and utensils after contact with raw meat and poultry. Wash cutting boards or other work surfaces too. Bacteria, often present on raw foods, can spread to other foods if you don't. Never leave perishable food out over 2 hours. This includes marinating. No need to bring foods to room temperature before cooking. Thoroughly cook raw meat, poultry, and fish to at least 160°F internal temperature. Juices should run clear and meat should not be pink. Do not partially cook food. Have a constant heat source, and never set the oven under 325°F. Promptly refrigerate or freeze leftovers. Divide large quantities into smaller containers for quick cooling. Reheat leftovers to at least 165°F. .......... ]
