News

Most interesting point to me here - I didn't know about the 2002/2003 study:   "A 2002-2003 study found that nearly two-thirds of restaurant-based outbreaks were caused by sick workers. About one-third were caused by employees touching food with their bare hands."   http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/02/01/food-poisoning-myths/4475101/

Outbreak database 2013-12-02

Cool site - lists all 'outbreaks' - the site state: " To be included in outbreakdatabase.com, the outbreak must have supporting documentation from public health agencies, journal articles, media reports, etc. Names of stores, brands, restaurants, or other sources are listed if they have been publicly identified previously."   http://www.outbreakdatabase.com/   I skim read couple of articles - Interesting point is that in at least some cases where there is an identified proven issue with a location for a given date/food item- not every person in the group will get food poisoning. For example in this case only 75% of the boys (who had the same dish: tacos)  got ill: http://news.sd.gov/newsitem.aspx?id=12503    

Fast food workers took to Reddit to name the menu items they absolutely would never eat, and it's a fascinating and somewhat disturbing read. So far more than 9,000 comments have been posted by (alleged) former and current employees. I just stumbled across it - link here
