Carers Scotland supports Food Safety Week 2009

18 May 2009

Carers Scotland is supporting this year's Food Safety Week from 15–21 June 2009 and will be disseminating information to carers throughout Scotland.

Food Standards Agency Scotland - Food Safety Week 15–21 June 2009

Grubeye will be making a repeat appearance at this year's Food Safety Week on 15–21 June. A range of events will be taking place across Scotland in schools, community groups and local councils, to highlight the importance of food safety and hygiene in the home.

As well as highlighting the importance of the 4 Cs (cooking, cleaning, chilling and avoiding cross-contamination), there will be a brand new theme to help tackle some specific food safety issues and protect vulnerable people in Scotland.

The Agency will be targeting the over 60s due to the rise in cases of listeria. The key messages will be:

Make sure you use food by its "use by" date;

Check the storage instructions on labels e.g. once opened use within 2 days;

Make sure fridges are kept at the right temperature (between 0 and 5 degrees).

If you are interested in organising your own event during Food Safety Week to promote good food hygiene we can provide you with free materials or if you want to be kept updated with developments, please register your details at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
