Public health ministry warns of easily spoiled food in summer

The Ministry of Public Health warns the public to eat only freshly cooked food since food spoils easily in hot weather.

Minister of Public Health M.D. Piyaskol Skolsattayathorn suggested food vendors to fully cook food with heat and wash fruits and vegetables with clean water many times. Knieves and cutting boards for raw and cooked food should be separated and the kitchen must be kept clean, said the minister.

As for consumers, the minister suggested that they eat freshly cooked food, use communal spoons and wash hands often in order to avoid digestive system diseases such as diarrhea.

From 1 January to 4 April 2016, there were more than 300,000 diarrhea patients. Two of them died.

10 popular dishes consumers should be extra cautious with include spicy salads with raw meat, fried rice topped with crab meat, food or desserts made with fresh coconut milk, salad and ice cubes.
