Prevention of Yersiniosis
Prevention of Yersiniosis:
can be done to prevent the infection?
1. Avoid eating raw or undercooked pork. 2. Consume
only pasteurized milk or milk products. 3. Wash hands with soap
and water before eating and preparing food, after contact with
animals, and after handling raw meat. 4. After handling raw chitterlings,
clean hands and fingernails scrupulously with soap and water before
touching infants or their toys, bottles, or pacifiers. Someone
other than the foodhandler should care for children while chitterlings
are being prepared. 5. Prevent cross-contamination in the kitchen:
-Use separate cutting boards for meat and other foods. -Carefully
clean all cutting boards, counter-tops, and utensils with soap
and hot water after preparing raw meat. 6. Dispose of animal feces
in a sanitary manner. (Source: excerpt from Yersinia enterocolitica: DBMD)
