Guidance from the Food Standards Agency

We are working with the Food Standards Agency to promote good hygiene practices for summer, when the risk of food poisoning goes up because of the warmer weather.

New research shows that people could be putting themselves and their families at risk through lack of knowledge of the '4C's' of food hygiene. These are:

  • Chilling and defrosting
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Avoiding cross contamination

Guide to safe summer food (food.gov.uk) provides tips on how to stay safe this summer and enjoy eating outdoors.
