The reputation of your food business would be severely damaged if it were linked to a food poisoning incident.

Dairy products have been linked to numerous food borne illness breakouts due to contamination from pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and Campylobacter.  It is also crucial to ensure that antimicrobials used in herd health do not enter the human food chain via dairy products.
