Eating Out Safely
63% of all food poisoning cases in Australia occur in restaurants, commercial caterers, retail take-aways, and bakeries. When living with cancer and eating out, take these following factors into consideration.
Look for: Clean looking and well dressed staff. Note hand washing procedures. Off odours in the premises or from the food. Clean premises, cutlery, glassware and crockery. Catering equipment that looks clean and cared for. Clean floors and bathrooms.
Questions to ask: How are eggs, meats, fish and poultry cooked? Are they under-cooked? Do they use a food probe to measure food temperature? How are foods cooked?
Avoid: Buffets and 'doggy bags'. Garnishes.
