ServSafe "Flow of Food"

ServSafe® sessions emphasize importance to prevent foodborne illness
and ultimately an outbreak.

Focusing specifically on contaminates, personal hygiene, pathogens,
allergens, facility and “flow of food” throughout day

Positive attitudes and cleanliness is priority, along with related food-handling
techniques ensuring management and associates are receiving continual
education through in-service sessions 



Flow of Food Snippets:

Purchasing, food safety begins with purchasing; be aware of products
origin and only purchase from trusted reputable distributors

, is greatest concern your first line of defense, receiver
must be trained and qualified to inspect, accept or reject product
at point of entry

Storing, Storage has its own set of concerns, foods must be
kept secure in either dry, frozen, refrigerated, or room
temperature to maintain best quality.

Preparation, “Keep it HOT” or “Keep it COLD” most important task,
remove small quantities of foods during production phase to complete
task and return products to storage source.

Cooking, Constantly monitor food throughout cooking process and when
verifying internal temperatures, utilize corrective action to fullest level.

Never serve undercooked products regardless of pressures instilled upon you.

, Always maintain allowable food temperatures while holding
hot or cold foods during service.

Stir foods constantly to maintain proper internal food temperatures.

Keep lids on service pans.


Cooling, use stringent two step method of cooling hot food from
any temperate down to 70 degrees within two hours and from
70 degrees to 41 degrees in four hours.

This cooling stage if firm and only adjusted by the FDA, CFP or local/state regulatory.

, When removing food from cold source only take out enough
required for service.

Reheat food to 165 degrees within two hours; should you not succeed
within two hours food must be discarded.

Serving, Remember dining with a significant other is an experience and no one should become ill

Personal hygiene, cross contamination can severely affect dining service;
wait person should wear clean attire, hair restraints, little makeup
and no excessive jewelry.
