The Danger Zone: Following Food Safety Temperatures
Food safety is paramount to any commercial restaurant operation. Failing to follow heating and cooling protocols can result in serious foodborne illness that will not only sicken customers, but land you in trouble with your local health department. You can help to avoid these health hazards by paying close attention to the food temperature "Danger Zone." The temperature danger zone refers to food temperatures between 41 to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, with the most rapid bacteria growth occurring between 70 and 125 degrees Fahrenheit. The more time food sits in this temperature range, the more opportunity there is for bacteria to grow to unsafe levels, causing food to spoil and become dangerous for consumption. You can avoid this dilemma by ensuring that food is quickly chilled or heated and held at safe temperatures. When cooling, blast chilling food to temperatures below 41 degrees is the best way to ensure that food does not sit in the "danger zone" for long. For hot entrees, operators must make sure that food temperatures stay above 141 degrees. Temperature Guidelines for Meat Certain temperature precautions must be taken with perishable foods such as meat. Be sure that meat, poultry, seafood, and other cooked foods have reached a safe internal temperature prior to serving. Sometimes, the recommended temperature for these products even exceeds the "danger zone" max temp of 135 degrees. It's important to note that you can't tell if meat has been safely cooked simply by looking at it - it must be measured with a meat probe thermometer . When Heating and Removing Meat: Be sure to follow rest time guidelines when removing meat from a grill, oven, or other heat source. During this time, the temperature will remain consistent or continue to rise helping to destroy harmful germs. Use a food thermometer to ensure that foods are cooked to a safe internal temperature. When Chilling: Your refrigerator should be set below 41 degrees to properly refrigerate foods. Germs can grow
