It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
The holidays are an exciting time! Family, travel, food and libations take priority over the work and family life that we maintain throughout the year. We wonder what quirky Uncle Wayne and the other relatives may have up their sleeves on Thanksgiving. How are we going to cram everyone into smaller quarters? Taking that third piece of mom’s pumpkin pie (without anyone noticing) and seeing the newest babies are top priorities.
The LAST thing that most of us are worried about is taking the precautions for safe meal preparation. Hardly anyone wants to spend time thinking about the journey that the turkey made from the field (or more likely food manufacturing plant) to your table.
The bleak reality remains that regardless of whether this IS a priority, 1 in 6 Americans will contract some sort of foodborne illness (according to the CDC) over the course of a year. That is why understanding how the turkey came from humble origins to become the centerpiece of your celebration is important to consider.
For the people at home, being mindful of your food prep practices and making sure to clean your sinks before you wash the turkey, and wash your fruits and vegetables to be sure to wash off the pesticides and other chemicals that are used throughout the supply chain to keep your produce microbe free, and looking fresh before you consume the chemicals.
Purosphere’s goal is to reduce the spread of pathogens and play our part in helping to keep people healthy. We are urging food processing plants, health care systems, food service providers and fitness facilities to evaluate our new sanitation solutions. We believe that by evaluating and changing to a more modern and impactful sanitation method, companies can bridge the critical gap between infection and health, decrease the chance of listeria outbreaks and animals being infected with staph infections in our supply chain thus putting humans at risk of infection.
