Food poisoning can be an agonizing experience
Chicago is a food lover’s paradise. In addition to dozens of convenient food stands and trucks, there is a plethora of food festivals and fairs that take place every year, thus making it fairly easy to try a wide variety of foods. However, consuming food that was prepared by another can put you at great risk for contracting a foodborne illness. Preparing meals outside of a hygienic kitchen setting can quickly subject food to poor sanitation and infectious agents. An employee who fails to maintain proper handling of food may also have an adverse effect on your health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 250 known diseases that can be transmitted through food. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that in the United States, 1 in 6 people becomes sick from eating contaminated food.
