Each year an estimated 5.4 million Australians contract a food borne illness. Adam Liaw, SA Health Food Safety Ambassador, reminds us that good food safety practices are essential in any kitchen to prevent contamination.
Most cases of food borne illness are preventable through good hand hygiene and safe food handling practices.
