Storing, labeling food correctly prevents contamination

NFSEM Week 4.pngRestaurants participating in National Food Safety Education Month will be focusing on what to watch for when storing food this week.

This year's theme, Lessons Learned from the Health Inspection, highlights food safety practices that health inspectors commonly cover.

Week 4 of the National Restaurant Association's month-long campaign to raise awareness about the importance of food safety education and training addresses food storage and labeling.

The free, downoadable training activity sheet teaches foodservice employees to store food in containers made for food and keep those containers sealed or covered, label food containers with a use-by-date, and to not refill condiment bottles by combining near-empty ones.





The 10-minute training activity also includes a series of images illustrating right and wrong ways of storing food, plus a poster to reinforce the training.

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.
