      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Foodborne diseases can cause death because they are caused by consuming contaminated food or beverages that contain harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or toxins. These pathogens can cause severe illness and complications, especially in individuals with weakened immune systems, such as the elderly, young children, and those with underlying health conditions.

    The proper temperature for a home refrigerator should be?

    • A.

      Below 5 Degree Celsius

    • B.

      Below 8 degree Celsius

    Correct Answer
    A. Below 5 Degree Celsius
    Explanation
    The proper temperature for a home refrigerator should be below 5 degrees Celsius. This temperature is recommended to ensure that perishable food items are kept at a safe temperature to prevent bacterial growth and spoilage. Keeping the refrigerator at this temperature helps to maintain the freshness and quality of the food for a longer period of time. It is important to regularly check and adjust the temperature settings of the refrigerator to ensure that it is operating at the optimal temperature.

    Keeping raw and cooked food separate prevents cross-contamination?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Keeping raw and cooked food separate is essential to prevent cross-contamination. Raw foods, such as meat, poultry, and seafood, may contain harmful bacteria that can be transferred to other foods if they come into contact. These bacteria can cause foodborne illnesses if consumed. By storing raw and cooked foods separately, the risk of bacteria spreading from raw to cooked food is minimized, ensuring the safety of the prepared meals. Therefore, the statement "Keeping raw and cooked food separate prevents cross-contamination" is true.
