Video testimonials illustrate food poisoning consequences
The U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) have posted three videos featuring people affected by foodborne illness in an effort to educate food businesses on the potentially devastating effects of an outbreak.
Two of the videos feature family members of Zella Ploghoft of Athens, Ohio, who died of complications from a Salmonella infection at age 82.
The other features Bernadette Jacobs, a mother of three who describes how she almost lost her newborn daughter due to a Listeria infection she contracted while pregnant.
Less than 10 minutes each, the videos can be used to educate employees on the possible, dire consequences of poor preparation practices and provide tips to prevent foodborne illness.
