Top Ten Food Safety Myths Slideshow

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has come up with a “Top Ten” food safety myth slideshow for consumers. Some interesting facts:

  • One bacteria left at room temperature for 7 hours will grow to 2,097,152!
  • Some bacteria, such as staphylococcus (staph), produce toxins not destroyed by high cooking temperatures.
  • 1 out of 4 hamburgers turn brown before being cooked to a safe temperature.
  • Meat and poultry should not be washed before cooking due to the danger of cross-contamination.
  • The U.S. food supply is still among the safest in the world.

Not a bad thing to expose all one’s employees to. You can view the slideshow right here.
