Week 1 Individual Project 1

Deliverable length: 200 – 250 words

Course Objectives:

  • Discuss the reasons for managing a sanitary foodservice operation.
  • List and describe the types of hazards that cause foodborne illness.
  • Describe symptoms and causative agents of major foodborne illnesses.
  • Demonstrate serving methods that enhance food safety.


The primary goal of a food safety program is to prevent foodborne illnesses and foodborne disease outbreaks. A foodborne illness is an acute illness resulting from eating contaminated food, with symptoms including abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea. A foodborne disease outbreak is the occurrence of two or more cases of the same illness resulting from the consumption of the same food.

Most foodborne illnesses occur in persons who are not part of recognized outbreaks. For many victims, foodborne illness results only in discomfort or lost time from the job. For some, especially preschool age children, older adults in health care facilities, and those with impaired immune systems, foodborne illness is more serious and may be life threatening.
