E coli in BBQ restaurant
 
Be careful out there!

Northeast Ga

I like this place. It is a hole in the wall that I have liked. Scary stuff!

Bet it was a contaminant in a side dish.

That is too bad. It only takes on careless moment, not washing your hands or produce well enough and you have an issue.

My crew hates it when I get on them about hygiene, but this points out the reason for diligence. 80% of food borne illness comes from improper personal hygiene, and in cases of E-coli its probably even higher. Wash your hands people!!!

Would also like to point out that the restaurant may have no fault at all in it if the product came to them already contaminated with e coli

How was it the iced tea?

You might be surprised to know how many instances of food poisoning are due to improper prep/storage of beverages.

Foodborne pathogens can survive in brewed tea, but for tea brewed at an appropriate temperature–with water hot enough to kill pathogens–the issue of safety is primarily one of storage conditions and ensuring the tea dispenser has been cleaned and disinfected before use.

Brewing iced tea at an appropriate temperature in a thoroughly cleaned urn and limiting the time held at room temperature before serving will minimize the risk of bacterial contamination.

* Iced tea should be brewed at 195 F for 3-5 minutes. * Iced tea should be stored for no longer than 8 hours.
* The tea brewer, storage dispenser, and faucet should be cleaned daily.

Cases where foodborne illness occur from beverages is almost always due to unclean/disinfected storage containers and holding the tea for long periods of time. I know of one establishment that never threw out tea at the end of the day. They just topped it off each day with new brew and I doubt that the storage container was cleaned/disinfected more than once or twice a month. I never did drink their tea. :shock:

Drink UP!!!!! :wink:

I have no doubt that improperly made/stored/served ice tea can cause foodborne to propregate and make someone sick, but ecoli? I would think that is more likely from someone not washing their hands properly. No???

The origin could well be improper hand washing but the source of transmission in this case appears to be the beverage/dispenser.

My dad got sick once after we played golf and he drank from a water cooler stored on the back 9. Disinfect your coolers and water jugs!
