Improper Hand Washing – Texas Food Handlers Card


When it comes to food safety, Texas takes no chances. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or just stepping into the culinary world, proper food handling is non-negotiable. One crucial aspect? Hand washing. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the significance of proper hand washing and explore why Ace Food Handler is the go-to choice for obtaining your Texas Food Handlers Card.

Improper Hand Washing: A Recipe for Disaster

Improper hand washing is a common cause of foodborne illnesses. Neglecting hygiene practices can lead to the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses. Here are some key points:

  1. Correct Technique: Always use warm running water and soap. Scrub your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds, covering all surfaces—backs of hands, wrists, between fingers, and under fingernails.
  2. Common Causes of Foodborne Illnesses:
    • Inadequate Hand Washing: Skipping or incorrect hand washing.
    • Working While Ill: Sick employees can contaminate food.
    • Cross Contamination: Transfer of harmful microorganisms.
    • Inadequate Cooking Temperatures: Undercooked food harbors pathogens.
    • Temperature Control: Improper storage allows bacteria to thrive.
  3. Danger Zone: Food left in the temperature range between 41°F and 135°F promotes bacterial growth.
  4. Virus Spread: Hepatitis A can be transmitted by a worker with poor hand hygiene.
