Food Safety Week soon !

The Food Standards Agency is running a “Food Safety Week” 15-21 June 2009.

This year they will be concentrating on promoting food safety to the over 60’s which is a good idea as this group is at rick of a more serious outcome if they have food poisoning compared with the average adult.  Underlying health problems and susceptability to dehydration put this age group at risk – also figures show that Listeria cases have doubled since 2001 with 70 per cent victims being over 60.
