Health recommends maximum precautions to avoid food poisoning in the summer – Murcia – San Javier

Summer is the time of greatest danger for foodborne diseases due to rising temperatures. For this reason, the Ministry of Health recommends taking extreme precautions when purchasing, transporting, storing and preparing food at home.

Therefore, the Directorate General of Public Health always recommends buying food in normal commercial channels, established or known establishments, because they are subject to periodic sanitary control which is a guarantee. In addition, it must be verified that the food has passed the corresponding health check and comes from licensed industries, which will be certified on the label.

In this sense, the Director-General of Public Health, José Jesus Gillin, noted that “health is not tampered with, and we must avoid any presentation that appears suspicious or is unable to guarantee the origin of the product.”

It is necessary to read the labels

Public Health reminds us of the importance of reading labels carefully to know important data such as the best before date, expiration date, proper method of preservation and ingredients, and information that will allow the product to be consumed with peace of mind, especially if you are allergic to any of the compounds.

Perishable foods, especially if they are frozen or refrigerated, require special handling. They should be left until the end of purchase or use thermal bags or coolers if it takes longer than usual to properly store them. Once placed in the refrigerator, raw and cooked food should be stored separately to avoid cross-contamination, and it is necessary to pack them in food grade aluminum foil or trays before storage.
