Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Specifically designed to assist child care food service personnel in providing wholesome food in a safe and sanitary manner, this sanitation guide interprets and expands on Chapter HSS 55 of the Wisconsin Department of Health and Social Services' code for licensing activities. Following a brief introduction, chapters 2 through 7 focus on bacteriology and food-borne illness, basic sanitation in relation to phases of food service operation, personal hygiene for food service personnel, insect and rodent control, use of safety and sanitation checklists, and inservice training. Related books, bulletins, manuals and unpublished materials are listed in a brief bibliography. Extensive appended materials provide (1) a list of sources for audiovisual aids; (2) a chart which indicates both the storage life of various foods in cool storerooms, refrigerators and freezers and the signs by which personnel can recognize foods with reduced quality; (3) a chart listing the approximate storage life of various foods at 0 degrees Fahrenheit; (4) examples of subject outlines for inservice training in the areas of food-borne diseases, storage facilities preparation, mechanical dishwashing, manual sinks and personal hygiene; (5) prototypes for use with overhead projectors; and (6) safety and sanitation self-inspection sheets.
