The Centers for Disease Control estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans gets a foodborne illness. Using contaminated surfaces and equipment is one of the leading causes. So making sure that food handlers follow the correct procedures for cleaning and sanitizing in your operation is vital.

For National Food Safety Month, the National Restaurant Association has created a video highlighting the five vital steps for cleaning and sanitizing food-contact surfaces. Restaurant owner/operators can share this video and an accompanying quiz with their employees to test their knowledge.

With this in mind, how are you bringing National Food Safety Month to your restaurant this year?
