International healthcare customers might want to discuss the best way of handling food in light of the recent outbreak of E. Coli.
The health problem, which was first found in Germany, has claimed 15 lives so far in its country of origin.
However, there have been around 627 cases of HUS (haemolytic uraemic syndrome) reported as a result of enterohaemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) infections in Germany alone.
Ishbel MacKinnon, co-ordinator of HUSH (haemolytic uraemic syndrome help), suggested that people be sure to take extra hygiene precautions in light of the outbreak.
She advised: "Hands should always be thoroughly washed with soap and hot water.
"Where food is concerned, wash whatever you can wash thoroughly and peel the skin off. For food that's been cooked, make sure it's well cooked, and obviously [follow] the general guidelines about keeping raw meat separate from cooked meat."
