Lack of BBQ hygiene “key contributor” to 500 deaths a year in UK

Hand washing is essential at home barbecues

Hygiene levels at home barbecues is a cause for concern

120,000 extra cases of food poisoning come to light every British summer, according to a recent report on the Burton Mail website.

“Seasonal stomach upsets could be linked as much to poor hand, surface and utensil hygiene as badly cooked meat.”

Worryingly, says the report almost 50% of people when preparing food.

The article states that a lack of focus on barbecue hygiene “is a key contributor to the 5.5 million cases of food poisoning, which cause 20,000 hospitalisations and 500 deaths each year.”
