Restaurant Cutting Board Safety
The first step to ensuring safety and cleanliness with plastic cutting boards is replacing replacing them regularly. As soon as a cutting board becomes difficult to clean, or has deep grooves, warps, or cracks, it should be replaced.
These deep grooves, warps and cracks can house bacteria, and may cause food to become contaminated. Meet your health code specs by replacing your commercial cutting boards frequently.
Keep Cutting Boards Clean
Make sure you wash boards after every use, even if it is something as simple as chopping onions. Before cleaning the board, remove all food particles; especially any raw meat.
If you have plastic cutting boards, stick them in the dishwasher. For a wood or bamboo cutting board, you you can hand wash with warm, soapy water. To disinfect a cutting board, use vinegar. For odors, scrub the board with a lemon half, and some salt. To remove stains, use baking soda and scrub with a damp cloth. Once you wash any cutting board, make sure it is completely dry before storing it.
Ensuring bacteria does not remain on your cutting boards is absolutely vital. Cross-contamination of foods, such as raw meats contaminating vegetables and fruits, is particularly important to avoid. You can eliminate these issues by using our seven different color cutting boards.
