    Judy Wetherill Canada You must keep all food at the proper temperature level to insure food safety. Keep all areas of food preparation clean and be always aware of not to cross contaminate with anything you are using, knives, cutting surfaces, dishes ect.... Use proper hair or hats to keep hair away and wear the appropriate clothing as to not have any articles get into the food. Keep all food storage areas and storage containers clean of crumbs or any type of spillage cleaned as to not attract rodents or pets. Label and and name products that are left over and always check expiration dates of products being used. 2015-02-18 19:02:02
