the worst carrier of contamination in food services
A little over a month after I wrote this article, I received an email from one of my friends at the University of Maryland. She was on her way to a seminar that she had to attend, and she needed to get a hold of a certain food that she had ordered from a restaurant. When she arrived, her waitress asked if she needed anything. She said “no, we are fine”. The waitress then asked, “what did you order?”.
She didn’t get the point and responded to the waitress. “I ordered the meatballs.
That was the response from the waitress! My friend must have ordered the meatballs and not the other meat. If you order the meatballs, the meat is probably contaminated, or you were given the wrong order.
It’s really possible that this could be a case of contamination. After all, the waitress may have been eating these meatballs in her regular restaurant. If her restaurant is contaminated with the meatballs, then other restaurants must be contaminated too. This is one of the reasons why it’s important to order meat that you’ve been eating regularly.
I know it’s an important part of this conversation, but meat is a very complex food to trace. You might be able to trace a burger, but it’s much harder to trace a chicken leg. And if you order chicken, the meat is probably contaminated, or you were given the wrong order. The very nature of meat (and the way it’s prepared and processed) is so complex that even the best traceability schemes can’t get it right.
So how do you order meat that is not contaminated? You order it with someone who has been eating meat from the same place for a while, or you order a contaminated meat with a lot of different parts. You might have to order it with someone who is completely unaware of the meat’s origin, or you might have to order it with a bunch of people who are all going to eat the same thing.
And that brings me to the last point. We live in a time where the idea of “freshness” has become so prevalent in society that we have to be careful to actually label everything that comes into our kitchens. It used to be the case that you could find your way to the grocery store with a map and a bunch of coupons. The idea of freshness was something that was generally accepted, so you could order anything you wanted to eat. Now you can’t.
As a result of a recent story posted on the social media, I’ve been asked to provide a link to my own website. It seems to be a perfect fit for us. The only thing I’m not sure of is why I’m here, but I’ll give you my story.
I was just trying to get a few things from the new Apple iPod Touch, but I was interrupted.
It was this story posted on the apple iPod website. Apparently, there was a story about the new iPod Touch and the guy who built it had some issues with the new phone’s antenna. He had to take the phone to the local Apple Store, which is a place that is known for not being open late at night. The store was closed but there was another Apple Store in town. I guess he thought he could get it out of the store by asking.
