Food Safety Infosheet Highlights:
- It’s not just cute baby poop; Norovirus, Shigella and Salmonella can be passed through poop (even baby poop) to food and cause illnesses.
- In 2007 an outbreak of foodborne illness, leading to 4 hospitalizations, was linked to an employee changing the diaper of a diarrhea-stricken toddler in the kitchen of a Maryland Chuck E. Cheese.
- Remind servers to clean and sanitize tables after service; don’t change babies (especially any with diarrhea) in the kitchen.
