SUB-PROBLEMS INCLUDING LEADING TO IMPAIRMENT AND BEST PRACTICES FOR STORAGE OF FOOD
Food may be stored either in dry form, refrigerated form, or frozen form. In dry form, the hazards may include insects, rodents, birds, dirt, chemicals, poor ventilation, flooding, improper rotation of food, etc. In refrigerated form, the hazards may include inadequate cooling, poor circulation of air, timeliness in cooling, oversized containers, contaminated food contact surfaces, improper storage of food, and improper rotation of food. In frozen form, the hazards may include inadequate and slow cooling, poor air circulation, contaminated food contact surfaces, defrosting and then re-freezing of food, and improper rotation of food. An additional major concern is the outbreak of a fire that can contaminate the food in all three types of storage with water, smoke, and heat.
