Research – Safe Handling and Serving of Soft Ice-cream


Poor practices by the food handler can result in the ice-cream becoming unsafe to eat and this can lead to food poisoning. Food poisoning is an unpleasant illness.

For young children, pregnant women, the elderly and the sick, it can be serious and sometimes fatal. Typical symptoms of food poisoning include:

• Nausea/vomiting

• Diarrhoea

• Stomach pains

• Headaches

All food businesses have a legal obligation to:

• Produce food in a hygienic manner

• Implement a food safety management system based on the principles of HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point)

• Implement a traceability and recall system

• Ensure that staff are supervised and instructed in food hygiene matters
