Food processing and handling facilities have a responsibility to create products that people can safely enjoy… but if employees don't take the proper precautions, the food that they work with could become contaminated by harmful microorganisms.
In order to reduce this risk, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created a regulation called "Current Good Manufacturing Practices" that establishes criteria for creating a contamination-free environment.
