So what can be done to prevent the spread of food borne illnesses? Using color-coded utensils is an easy and effective way to visually separate work areas and reduce cross-contamination. Facilities with cross-contact concerns of allergens should particularly consider color-coding to lower that risk.
Vollrath offers a wide variety of color-coded serving utensils that have silver or zinc ions built right into the handles. This design provides a no-nonsense, all-natural antimicrobial solution to help you meet and exceed safety standards for your serving environment. Unlike chemical or man-made antimicrobials which generally interact with only one specific site on a microbe, the natural antimicrobial compound attacks multiple targets on the microbe by obstructing cell respiration, starving the bacteria and preventing cell reproduction.
