  Buy qualitative products

The Department of Sanitary and Epidemiological Control of the Medeu District of Almaty on the eve of the New Year holidays in order to prevent food poisoning advises residents and guests of the city to buy only safe products. Do not buy food in unidentified places of sale, from hands.

Do not hesitate to ask for food quality and safety documents!

Also pay attention to the storage conditions and shelf life of food at home. Store all perishable products (dairy products, sausages, pastries with cream) only in the refrigerator at a temperature of + 2 ... + 6 ° C. Meat, chilled fish, seasoned salads, pastries and cakes stored at room temperature for more than 3-4 hours are a favorable environment for the development of microorganisms that increase the risk of food poisoning. Do not cook salads and minced meat dishes in large quantities, try to season salads before serving. Moreover, do not mix freshly prepared food with the leftovers of yesterday.

Avoid "cross-contamination" when cooking. "Cross-contamination" is a term used to describe the transfer of microorganisms from raw food to finished food. This can happen both during cooking and during storage, transportation of products.

Raw foods, especially meat, poultry, seafood and their liquids, can contain harmful microorganisms that can cause food poisoning if they get into ready-made meals.

Therefore, use separate knives and cutting boards for handling raw food, and only clean utensils and utensils for ready meals.

Also, remember to wash your hands with soap and water before you start cooking, and wash your hands after handling the raw materials.

Be healthy!
