  • I think the course is really good because you can log back out and save your spot within the module. The modules seemed very precise to the point with images that associated to the particular topic which made learning interesting.

Summer eating

27/12/2013 - 3:59 pm by: NSW Food Authority

The NSW Food Authority has put together a guide to keeping your food safe this summer.

Summer is a time for spending quality time with family and friends enjoying special summer treats such as BBQs and seafood.

Unfortunately at this time of year there are spikes in food poisoning. Salmonella typically doubles in the summer, compared with the winter months.

Family feasts, eating outdoors and the warmth of summer can offer the ideal environment for bacteria to grow. 

When large quantities of food are cooked and left out in the open for long periods, food poisoning bugs can spread and multiply. Fridges that are overfilled with leftovers and kept at 5oC or above also pose a risk. 

So this summer when the temperature rises remember the key food safety tips and don’t let food poisoning ruin the fun.
