According to one study by the Mayo Clinic, about 50,000 emergency room visits per year are caused by food allergies.
Segregate to Avoid Cross-Contamination
Experts believe that a best practice to avoid such mishaps is to keep a segregated set of sanitized cooking tools for use only when food allergies become an issue. San Jamar Chef Revival has made that practice simple by creating the Allergen Saf-T-Zone System. The system consists of a color-coded cutting board, knife, tongs, turner and case. The purple color alerts staff to follow special food allergy procedures when preparing a meal. The durable case securely protects the kit from contamination during storage and can easily be found when needed.
Why This Matters More and More
With food allergies on the rise and new government regulations making foodservice providers more responsible for food allergy incidents, is there any reason why a commercial kitchen wouldn’t keep an Allergen Saf-T-Zone System on hand? The Allergen Saf-T-Zone System can raise awareness, protect customers and protect your business.
Additional Saf-T-Zone cutting boards are available separately. A purple Saf-T-Zone digital food-probe thermometer is also available from San Jamar Chef Revival.
