Why Read This Book?
Think about the last time you ate out. Was the food served hot? Did the restroom have hand soap and paper towels? The Health Department looks for these things to keep people from getting sick. People can get sick if food is left out at room temperature or if germs get into their food or drinks. Hands can look clean but if they have germs on them, someone can get sick. Food can smell good but have germs on it that make it unsafe to eat. This is why you will want to develop safe habits to keep you, your customers and your family healthy.
