Question and answer
Identify potential food-safety hazards when preparing, serving, clearing away and storing food and drink?
When preparing food, you must be sure the area is completely clean and free of bacteria before starting. Clean the cutting board after each use, using bleach or disinfectant solution cleaning up after meats or poultry. [ Keep foods at proper temperatures, to avoid bacterial growth and the possibility of food poisoning. Keep hot foods hot, and cold foods cold. Be careful not to cut yourself with
sharp knives, or burn yourself with hot oil or hot water. Keep chemicals stored in separate area from foods. Keep the date opened on containers or leftovers, do not use past safe date (varies by type of foods). When clearing away, use clean cloth to wipe table, not leftover napkins - to avoid spreading germs. Most importantly, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before and after food preparation and after cleaning up. ]

Explain the importance of implementing food-safety measures when providing food and drink for individuals?
Weegy: Food safety is of extreme importance to our health and those of our loved ones. More and more we hear of mass food contamination incidents and food recalls in the news. [ This is due through lack of use of proper hygeine by employees on farms, in butcher shops, packing houses, restaurants, and grocery chains and failure of these facilities to adhere to strict food and safety laws of the FDA. In a haste to meet deadlines and get the foods to market in order to reap larger profits these rules are often overlooked. There are, too, always those employees who rather than report something to their superiors when they have made an error will let it slide by in fear of losing their job. Food poisoning can not only be a very unpleasant experience but a costly one which leave us with long term organ damage and can be fatal as well. As adults it is our responsibility to protect our children and those we serve food to from the carelessness and greed of others. Therefore, food safety should be a constant forethought while grocery shopping. There are a number of things you can do to protect your family. ............... ] (More)
