    • Description:
      Millions of people get sick every year from food. Many of these illnesses have been linked to restaurants. Food eaten at restaurants sometimes makes people sick because food workers handled the food when they were sick with vomiting or diarrhea.

      Germs from sick food workers can get onto food if workers do not wash their hands properly and then touch food with their bare hands. If that food will not be cooked—for example, salads and sandwiches—customers who eat it can then get sick.

      EHS-Net found that 12% of food workers said they had worked when they were sick with vomiting or diarrhea.

      EHS-Net also found that food workers were less likely to say they had worked when they were sick if they worked in a restaurant that

      • Was less busy.

      • Had a policy for workers to tell their manager when they were sick.

      • Had workers who could come to work to fill in (on-call workers).

      • Had a manager with more experience.
