Food safety is increasingly important in nearly every food service operation. From schools to local restaurants, food safety must take a priority to help prevent foodborne illnesses in a variety of settings. One of the single most important aspects of that process is temperature control. The leading cause for foodborne illnesses is abuse of the times or temperatures at which food is stored or cooked. Whether it’s not cooked to the recommended internal temperature, not held at the right temperature, or not cooled properly, food is susceptible any time it’s in the danger zone. The longer it sits there, the more time pathogens have to grow and make customers sick.
