Placeholder Image
McMinnville – Warren County Senior Center’s Second Harvest volunteers recently completed a food safety class with Warren County environmentalist Joel Worsham. During the workshop, they learned about foodborne illness risk factors, which included improper hot/cold holding and cooling of potentially hazardous food, improper cooking temperatures, contaminated utensils and equipment, poor health and hygiene and food from unsafe sources. Some potentially hazardous foods that promote the growth of harmful bacteria include meat, fish, poultry, seafood, eggs, cooked vegetables, rice, beans, pasta and potatoes.
