Cleaning, sanitizing in focus for week 3 of NFSEM

NFSEM Week 3.png

Ben the dishwasher was washing equipment in a three-compartment sink. He scraped the items, scrubbed them with a detergent solution, rinsed them, and then dipped them quickly into the sanitizer solution. Then he placed each item upside down to dry. Did Ben do the right thing when it came to cleaning and sanitizing?

That is one of the questions included in the training activity of week three of this year's National Food Safety Education Month, which highlights tasks and procedures to keep in mind for a health inspection - and for day to day operations year-round. Week three of the campaign's free materials focuses on cleaning and sanitizing.

The training activity sheet details how to correctly clean and sanitize food contact surfaces, mix sanitizer solution, and store cloths used for wiping food spills. Then asks a series of questions to test your knowledge.

So, did Ben clean and sanitize the dishes in the right way? The answer is no - quickly dipping items in sanitizer solution is not effective.

All NFSEM training materials are based on the National Restaurant Association's ServSafe program. This year's NFSEM is sponsored by SCA, a global hygiene company and makers of the Tork brand of away-from-home paper products. Visit TalkTork.com for a free trial offer.
