Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Letting meals sit too long before consuming can cause foodborne illness to arise.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Letting meals sit for too long before consuming can allow bacteria to multiply and produce toxins, leading to foodborne illness. This is because bacteria can grow rapidly at room temperature, especially in perishable foods. Consuming such contaminated food can result in symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. Therefore, it is important to properly store and consume meals within a safe time frame to prevent the risk of foodborne illness.

    Hand washing is an important part of preventing cross-contamination of microorganisms.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hand washing is indeed an important part of preventing cross-contamination of microorganisms. When we wash our hands with soap and water, we remove dirt, germs, and bacteria from our hands, reducing the risk of spreading them to surfaces, objects, or other people. This practice is especially crucial in healthcare settings, food preparation areas, and during times of infectious disease outbreaks. By regularly washing our hands, we can help prevent the transmission of harmful microorganisms and maintain good hygiene.

  • 3. 

    It is ok to snack on food in the kitchen.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Snacking on food in the kitchen may not be okay because it can lead to unhealthy eating habits and mindless eating. The kitchen is often associated with meal preparation and eating in designated areas such as the dining room or kitchen table promotes mindful eating and portion control. Snacking in the kitchen can also lead to constant grazing throughout the day, which can contribute to weight gain and poor nutrition. Therefore, it is generally advised to avoid snacking in the kitchen.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If you become hot and need to cool down you should use one of your kitchen work towels to wipe off your sweat.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using a kitchen work towel to wipe off sweat is not an effective way to cool down when feeling hot. Sweat is the body's natural cooling mechanism, and wiping it off can prevent the evaporation process that helps in cooling. It is more effective to allow the sweat to evaporate naturally or use other methods such as drinking cold water, taking a cold shower, or using a fan or air conditioning to cool down.

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that snacking in the Hub should only be done when open boxes are left out on the table. However, the correct answer is False because the statement does not provide any valid reason or rule for snacking in the Hub. It is important to follow proper guidelines and etiquettes when it comes to snacking in any shared space.
