As you know, foodborne illness ?is a widespread problem


As you know, foodborne illness  is a widespread problem, not only in the United States, but around the  world. Prior to beginning this course, you may have thought that  foodborne illnesses were only caused by restaurants or food  manufacturers. However you have learned that what you do (or do not do)  in your own home can also cause foodborne illnesses. Whether it is  letting the kids sample the raw cookie dough, washing your raw chicken  in the kitchen sink, letting your meat thaw at room temperature all day,  or judging a burger by the way it looks, there are many ways that we  can unintentionally cause harm to ourselves and our families through  improper food safety practices.

For this final assignment, you will be creating a food safety manual  to be used in your own home. There is a suggested table of contents  listed below, but it is up to you to fully address each section. You may  add to the table of contents, but you may not delete anything.  Remember, this is for use in your own home, so it should be specific to  your home. So if you are a parent of small children, you may be  including different information than a single retired adult. Take into  account the structure of your family, and who typically shops for,  stores, prepares, serves, and consumes food in your home.

Do NOT include the explanations in parentheses that follow the table  of contents elements – these are to help clarify what should be included  – but DO include page numbers for reference.

Please do NOT copy and paste charts from various websites. Anyone can  copy and paste. That does not show that you understand the concepts.  Visuals are encouraged – either create your own or if you must use an  existing visual, be sure to give credit to the creator of the image. You  should cite your sources using APA format for in-text citations. So if  you have a list of internal cooking temperatures (hint, hint), cite the  source that you used to find those temperatures.

This is for you to demonstrate what you have learned and how you  would share your food safety knowledge with your family and friends.  Have fun with this.

??anything else you would like to include??

 be sure that you are fully  explaining each content area. At least 1  pages written for each  topic. R
