Food Safety

Safe food is something we may take for granted. Thousands of people in Ontario suffer from food-borne illness (also known as food poisoning). Food has the potential to make us very sick if it is not handled and prepared correctly. It’s key to take the right steps when handling food to keep it safe.

It does not matter if you are handling food at your home or at the restaurant you work at, food safety is in your hands. Proper handwashing is an important part of preventing food-borne illness.
