Be a germ buster. Wash your hands.
Effective hand hygiene reduces the risk of meat contamination and the transmission of foodborne disease.
Clean hands are essential to health and effective handwashing is one of the simplest ways to prevent the spread of germs. Hand hygiene is particularly important in minimizing food safety risks along food animal chains, as there are many diseases that can be transmitted to humans from polluted meat. Zoonotic agents such as Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E. coli can cause food poisoning, presenting major public health risks.
