Food Worker Illness

Reviewed 2014 by Suzanne Driessen, Extension Educator — Food Safety

Workers who prepare food while experiencing diarrhea and/or vomiting are frequently linked to foodborne illness outbreaks in restaurants and other retail food outlets. As a food manager or worker you have a responsibility to protect yourself and your guests from foodborne illness. Fact sheets, decision guide, illness log, and posters are available from the Minnesota Department of Health.
