Each year, 5.4 million or 1 in 4 Australians get food poisoning and it is estimated that about two thirds of these cases come from commercial food premises.
Food poisoning can have serious health impacts and so it is important that food businesses ensure they store and handle food correctly so the food they serve to the community is safe to eat.
