Top 10 Worst Food Contamination Outbreaks

We recently blogged about the e coli outbreak in Europe which prompted someone to point out another blog post summarising the 10 worst food contamination outbreaks.

Click on the hyperlink to have a look – it’s pretty scary stuff which once again highlights the importance of good food safety management programs.

We all have a stake in this because we all eat and consume food from a wide variety of sources.

If you come across interesting statistics and data like this, please let us know, we’d love to blog about it.

    I found this information and was quite shocked how much food poisoning is killing people in Australia Yearly.

    Number of cases of food poisoning in Australia 5.4 million yearly.
    Number of new daily cases of food poisoning in Australia 11,500.
    120 People die due to food poisoning each year in Australia.

    Food Poisoning

    A lot of food poisoning these days is due to lack of proper care. Take away food may be okay to eat when it is purchased. Too many people keep the left over food to heat up later. Often this is warmed and not recooked as is should be. The food is then blamed. Also far too many things are being bought in plastic bags. Lettuce leaves that are used straight from the bag without washing them. Undercooked meat is still a big problem. People must learn to look to their own homes first.
