Protection against intestinal infections and elimination of the risk of food poisoning

And we continue to talk about nutrition Lviv Regional Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine To protect against intestinal infections and eliminate the risk of food poisoning, the World Health Organization has developed five basic rules for observing food safety.

Rule 1 - Keep it clean

· Wash your hands with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds before preparing food. It is also necessary to wash your hands after you have touched such products as eggs, raw meat, fish and seafood, because their surface may contain dangerous microorganisms, which after proper handling

heat treatment will die.

Wash your hands every time after using the toilet, changing diapers, coughing or sneezing, after caring for the sick, after contact with animals or with garbage.

Wash all kitchen utensils that have come into contact with food in warm, soapy water. These are, in particular, boards, dishes and countertops.

· Use disposable paper towels to clean kitchen surfaces. If you use cloth towels, wash them often at a high temperature.

· Wash vegetables and fruits thoroughly under running water, including those with inedible skin (bananas, oranges, melons, watermelons, etc.).

· Protect the kitchen and food products from insects, rodents and other animals.

Pay attention! It is not necessary to wash meat and poultry before cooking: microbes will die during heat treatment. You won't be able to wash them off, instead, during washing, they get not only on the sink, but also spread throughout the kitchen, "settle" on dishes and those products that are eaten raw. If

you need to remove blood and bone remains from raw meat, this can be done with a paper towel
