Food delivery & take out: The new normal for households
Food delivery services are in high demand right now. Online grocery delivery sales alone have quadrupled within the past few weeks. Families are concerned about how COVID-19 affects the food they eat and the surfaces they touch.
From the FDA:
What does this mean for people now?
Foodborne exposure to COVID-19 is not known to be a route of transmission. COVID-19 causes respiratory illness, and the greatest risk is being around people who are symptomatic.
The FDA does not anticipate that food products would need to be recalled or withdrawn from the market for reasons related to the outbreak, even if a person who works in a human or animal food facility (e.g. a food packager) is confirmed to be positive for the COVID-19 virus.
How should people handle delivered food?
People should continue to consistently use the Core Four safe food handling practices of clean, separate, cook and chill to reduce risk from harmful germs.
The risk of foodborne illness increases during the summer months. Learn how to keep your family safe with these tips from the USDA.
