New food safety infosheet: cruising for noro
Posted: May 28th, 2010 - 2:04pm by Ben Chapman
I’ve never been on a cruise. I like to think that I have a few outfits that would qualify as cruise wear but that’s about as close as I’ve been. Dani and I have discussed maybe going sometime, especially since we live within a four-hour drive of Charleston, but we’re going to try out an NC beach vacation first. After my campylobacter experience last Fall (that I use in pretty well every talk I give), maybe a cruise would be a good place to generate some more material. Through cleaning and sanitizing after an outbreak is one of the biggest noro control measures for vessels, but if that doesn’t work, like was seen earlier this year with the Celebrity Mercury in three straight voyages, maybe it’s time to move the ship to Europe and rename it?
The most recent food safety infosheet addresses Norovirus outbreaks on cruiseships and cleaning up vomit as noro control.
