IamA former health inspector of restaurants, grocery stores and gas stations in one of the biggest counties in the US. I've worked in food safety in various capacities for over a decade. AMA!
I have worked in food safety in many capacities for over a decade from processing plants, to restaurants, to school cafeterias, to grocery stores, to gas stations and anywhere else food is processed or sold. Every time I think I've seen it all, something new comes up and surprises me. I'm here to answer any questions you have about food safety or anything else food related!
I need to remain somewhat anonymous so that my current position isn't jeopardized, but here is some proof that I am certified in food safety.
EDIT: Wow! I didn't know you guys would be so interested! You've had some excellent questions and I've done my best to answer every one of them. Please keep them coming. I need to head off to bed now so I can get up early in the morning and play a small part in protecting the food YOU eat! I'll answer all I can in the morning! :)
EDIT #2: Wow front page?!? I'm blushing! I've only been on reddit for about 2 months. Glad I can contribute something you're interested in!!
