The free training materials for the upcoming National Food Safety Education Month are now available in Spanish and English. These materials are designed around the 2008 theme, Take Action to Prevent an Allergic Reaction, (Tome Medidas para Prevenir las Reacciones Alérgicas) and help operators reinforce the importance of reducing the incidence of food allergy reactions in the establishment by focusing on five weekly themes:

  • Know the Common Food Allergens (Conozca las sustancias alergénicas más comunes)
  • Communication with the Customer (Cómo comunicarse con los clientes)
  • Avoiding Cross-Contact (Cómo evitar el contacto cruzado)
  • When Mistakes Happen (Cuando ocurren errores)
  • Symptoms of an Allergic Reaction (Los síntomas de las reacciones alérgicas)

As part of our continued efforts to align NFSEM with the most current, proper food safety practices, the NFSEM Web site is now a part of ServSafe.com. The free training and promotional materials can be found on the new site http://www.ServSafe.com/NFSEM

WHO

Industry professionals are encouraged to use these materials to take part in this national awareness campaign. The free weekly training activities and free posters are designed to emphasize the importance of food allergen awareness; and can be used to supplement in-unit food safety training.
