SafeFood© in Cold Season

February 26th, 2010

I’ve been lucky so far – am only now experiencing my first cold of the year. I think the H1N1 scare and handwashing efforts helped a lot in making people more aware about their own hand hygiene and health. But even though I feel (and look) like crap right now, I also am thankful I have sick days. That is not the case for many working part time in the foodservice industry. If they don’t work – they don’t get paid.
