What is one observable Interaction of how organisms live and survive in their environment? which of the following non living elements do all living organisms depend on for survival.
- Scrape food off surfaces before washing.
- Wash the dishes in hot, soapy water. …
- Rinse dishes very thoroughly in clean, hot water. …
- Sanitize the dishes with a chlorine bleach solution OR the hot water method (see the “HOW TO SANITIZE” section below for directions on these two options). …
- Allow dishes to air dry.
You can detect if food is contaminated by checking for mold, bitter taste, and “off odors”.
Examples of non-potentially hazardous foods are: dry baked goods, breads, cookies, fruit pies, jams, jellies, preserves, fruit butters, honey, sorghum, cracked nuts, dried herbs, packaged spices and spice mixes, dry cookie, cake, bread, and soup mixes.
WASH dishes in hot, soapy water in the first sink. If the water gets too cool or soap suds have diminished, start over. RINSE dishes with clean, hot water in the second sink. SANITIZE by soaking the dishes in the third sink filled with room temperature water and an approved sanitizer.
There are three methods of using heat to sanitize surfaces – steam, hot water, and hot air.
The major types of sanitizers are heat, radiation, and chemicals. Chemicals are more practical than heat and radiation for food production facilities.
There are three main types of cross contamination: food-to-food, equipment-to-food, and people-to-food. In each type, bacteria are transferred from a contaminated source to uncontaminated food.
Some examples are: Handling foods after using the toilet without first properly washing hands. Touching raw meats and then preparing vegetables without washing hands between tasks. Using an apron to wipe hands between handling different foods, or wiping a counter with a towel and then using it to dry hands.

- dairy products such as milk, custard and dairy‐based desserts.
- seafood (excluding live seafood)
- processed or cut fruits and vegetables, such as salads.

Potentially hazardous foods have certain characteristics that support the growth of pathogenic microorganisms or the production of toxins. Factors affecting microbial growth include the nutrients, moisture, acidity (pH) and gas atmosphere of the food.
The person-in-charge is the owner of the business, or a designated person – such as a chef, kitchen manager, or employee – who is always present at the work site and has direct authority and supervision over employees who engage in the safe storage, preparation, display, and service of food.

The final step of the wash, rinse, and sanitizing procedure is immersion of the object in water with a temperature of at least 170°F for no less than 30 seconds. The most common method of hot water sanitizing takes place in the final rinse cycle of dishwashing machines.
There’s a big difference between cleaning and sanitizing. Cleaning removes food and other types of soil from a surface such as a countertop or plate. Sanitizing reduces the number of pathogens on the clean surface to safe levels. To be effective, cleaning and sanitizing must be a 5-step process.
