AU: What food poisoning risks lurk in your home?
Australian Broadcasting Corporation: Millions of Australians get food poisoning every year and many of these cases are caused by foods prepared at home. From rice to chicken, test your food safety knowledge and find out whether you know what the risks are.
It’s estimated that every year 4.1 million Australians will suffer a bout of food poisoning. That means that on average, we get sick from something we ate or drank every five years.
Given that none of us want to be laid low with the vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps (or worse) that come with food-borne illness, it pays to know how to reduce your risk of consuming contaminated foods.
