Review from last class the Dept. of Health, "Fact Sheets" on Food-borne illnesses by calling individuals or units to identify an important concept to share with the class. Discuss each topic considering the time and to what extent you wish to cover.
Show the video, Food Safety. As the students watch it, have them write down as many of the eleven possible errors from the surveillance tape as they observe Chris and her Dad that may have been the cause for illness. During the video, stop it at the appropriate time for class discussion.
Review with the students information about prevention techniques, temperature zones and the importance of cooking to proper temperature and cooling and reheating foods to correct temperature and thawing foods correctly.
