safe food preparation

Food preparation must be safe to produce food that is free from foodborne illness. Food can be easily contaminated. Leaving food uncovered for even a short time may not seem harmful, but in that time, flies can get into the food and lay their eggs. You cannot see the fly eggs with the naked eye, but after digesting the food in a couple of hours, you may feel sick.

Everyone loves salads, but salads are one of the most dangerous and easily contaminated foods and should be kept on ice at all times. Leaving salads that have mayonnaise or salad dressing unchilled can be potentially dangerous.

Leaving salads at room temperature creates toxins. The incubation period is from 1 to 6 (meaning that in 1 to 6 hours after eating the food you will get sick). There will be no fever, just a slight tummy ache.

In the incubation period, which is 6 to 72 hours, the bacteria invade the tissues and fever develops. There is also vomiting and diarrhea, you must treat these symptoms or they can result in death.
