The theme for Australian Food Safety Week, 8 to 15 November 2015, was ‘Did you know? (busting the food safety myths).
There are a lot of myths out there about what causes food poisoning so during the Week we released the latest consumer research about what Australians understand about food safety, plus some simple tips to help people reduce their risk of getting sick.
