Why are food regulations important? Food regulations are in place to protect people from foodborne illnesses. Contaminated food can cause harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites to be ingested, leading to severe discomfort or even death. Food regulations have been a part of the US since Theodore Roosevelt signed the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906, which led to the formation of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The main goals of food safety standards include:
· Protecting consumers from adulterated food
· Enhancing public trust in the food service industry
· Protecting business owners from liability
· Promoting best practices and industry standards
Preventing Poor Food Safety
The best way to ensure clean and safe food is to have well-established food safety procedures based on FDA and health department guidelines. Your restaurant should have clear standard operating procedures (SOPs) for every aspect of food handling, from receiving deliveries to serving. Employees should have access to information on how to complete tasks safely and efficiently, including:
· Cleaning and sanitizing work surfaces and utensils
· Cleaning bathrooms and public areas
· Food storage and labeling practices
· Opening and closing procedures
· Safe temperature ranges for storing, cooling, and freezing prepared foods
