This is your premier source for APPROVED food handler training & testing for the State of Illinois. eFoodHandlers' online course is ANSI approved, providing quality safety education on proper food handling and preparation practices.
As people in ILLINOIS take their cooking and entertaining outside, food handlers of the domestic variety
face new food safety threats. Salsa & Guacomole are both potentially hazardous food
that permits the spread of bacteria. Warm temperatures can increase this growth and ca be a license for disaster
if safe food handling practices are ignored. Food handlers must keep foods like Salsa & Guacomole as well as all TCS foods (Temperature
Control for Safety) free of harmful pathogens. The key is to not permit food to remain in the danger zone (41-135 degress).
Always refrigerate these foods when not being served.
Earning a certificate from eFoodhandlers teaches even the weekend food handler about proper temperature
control and the results from unsafe handling practices.
