As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel of a disastrous year, one challenge refuses to go away. And that’s the continued threat of unsafe and contaminated food supplies.
Even with the stringent national and global regulations, we continue to see unsafe foods percolate throughout what we put on our tables and serve in restaurants. We’ve all seen the disturbing statistics. According to the World Health Organization, one in 10 people are sickened by eating food processed or prepared by others. And 420,000 people die each year from food-borne illness.
