Today I will list a few great resources for any food manager. The servsafe certification is a great start but putting what we learn into practice is really important. So at Westchester Food Safety we have put together a quick list that will help any restaurant manager/owner keep up with the food safety rules and practices that in the end will help your business grow.
Westchester Food Safety and Bergen Food Safety have created a page called Resources, you can access this page via:
Here you will find great tools related to Servsafe and beyond. Testing tips plus in house tools to make your food establishment run great.
The FDA, the Food and Drug Administration has great tools all related to many of the following topics.
Recalls, Outbreaks & Emergencies, Foodborne Illness & Contaminants, Ingredients, Packaging & Labeling, Dietary Supplements, Food Defense (A.L.E.R.T.), Science & Research (Food), Guidance & Regulation, Compliance & Enforcement, and lots more. You can access the site via:
Here you can find out about the big 8 allergens. Which is also covered on Servsafe.
A great site to go through is the USDA’s site.
The expects to prevent as many as 25,000 foodborne illnesses annually thanks to tougher standards set for Salmonella and new standards for Campylobacter which will reduce the occurrence of these pathogens in poultry.
USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) ensures that our nation’s meat, poultry and processed egg supply is wholesome, safe and properly labeled. Through prevention-based policies and practices USDA is meeting the foodborne challenges of the 21st century head on and using science to craft the best ways forward.
