Although strains of Escherichia coli, or what is commonly known as E.coli, can promote healthy functions within our bodies, some strains can cause serious and contagious illness.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, E.coli is a common foodborne illness that spreads quickly. And, without proper procedures in place, which include processes for food preparation and strong hand hygiene protocols, your restaurant might be at risk for a possible E. coli outbreak. So how can you reduce this risk?
In a recent interview, GOJO Microbiologist Dave Shumaker shares information about the highly contagious strains of E.coli, where they come from, and the measures you can take to mitigate your restaurant’s risk.
