Food Safety Tip
Campylobacter is a major cause of food borne gastroenteritis. Raw meat, especially poultry, is one of the sources of transmission. Symptoms appear within 2-5 days and include muscle pain, headache and fever, followed by diarrhoea and abdominal pain. The illness lasts about 5 days.
Cross-contamination is the transfer of harmful bacteria from one food to another. Separate chopping boards and correct hand washing is essential to avoid cross-contamination.
