Tuesday - Bare Essentials - Your Operation's Food Handlers' Cards

Not only is food safety knowledge the responsibility of every food operation, in many cities, counties and states, but it’s also the law. If you’re not verifying that your employees all have valid food handler cards your legal liability greatly increases if someone becomes ill or dies from a foodborne illness due to eating your food. With everyone holding a card you have not only complied with the law you have demonstrated a good faith effort to protect your customers.  If most or all of your food handlers do not have cards you are open to not only greater civil liability, but a possible criminal liability.

Protect your customers and yourself. Require every one of your food handlers to hold a valid ANSI accredited TAP Series Food Handler Certificate.
