Food poisoning bacteria
Food poisoning bacteria don’t affect the smell, taste or appearance of food.
- food poisoning is caused by contaminated food that has been poorly handled, stored or not cooked properly
- you cannot tell just by looking at a food whether it has been affected by food poisoning bacteria
- you could easily transport, prepare or sell food without knowing that it could cause food poisoning.
It is important to take steps to prevent food from being contaminated in the first place.
