Further explanation

Meat slices are typically used in delis, cafes, grocery stores, and restaurants. A meat slicer, or sometimes just a slice of slices can be used for a variety of food like cheese, sausage and other deli product.

Because this meat slice is used frequently, it is important to clean it regularly and expel it after each use. This can prevent the accumulation of pieces of oil and meat and dangerous bacteria. The FDA recommends that meat slices be cleaned every four hours.

There are several ways to prevent cross-contamination: use one cutting board for fresh produce, and one for raw meat, poultry, or seafood. Use separate plates and utensils for cooked and raw foods. Clean and sanitize all food contact surfaces after each use and regularly. Always wash your hands properly after contact with raw food, gloves cannot be worn instead of hand wash. There are some guidelines on how to prevent cross-contamination when storing, preparing and serving food.

People should be aware of the signs of food poisoning, which can start within hours of eating contaminated food. These symptoms include nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Food poisoning is often mild and resolves without treatment.
