The kitchen can be a very clean or extremely dirty place. The place we prepare our food can be contaminated by contact with contaminated people, foods, pets, or other environmental sources.
Our hands are the main reason we contaminate and the people that decide not to wash their hands before making food will continue to contaminate the area and anything they touch. Below is a list of items in our kitchens that will definitely host bacteria, some being harmful. Contaminated Items:
Dishrags, towels, and sponges
Bins Can openers
Countertops and surfaces.
Sink drains Cutting boards
Food processors and blenders Coffee Machines
