Cross Contamination

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) have produced guidance for all food businesses and enforcing officers on controlling cross contamination of E coli 0157.  The guidance was issued by the FSA as a result of the E. coli outbreak in South Wales in 2005.

The guidance covers several areas throughout a food business where there is potential for cross contamination.  Areas covered include physical separation, cleaning and disinfection, personal hygiene and handling practices and food safety management systems.

A copy of the guidance can be found using the link to the Food Standards Agency's website in the Related Sites section on the left hand side of this page.
