    • B.

      Chicken breast, ground beef, fish fillets

    • C.

      Ground beef, fish fillets, chicken breast

    • D.

      Fish fillets, chicken breast, ground beef

    Correct Answer
    A. Fish fillets, ground beef, chicken breast
    Explanation
    The correct order to store foods in the refrigerator, from top to bottom, is fish fillets, ground beef, and chicken breast. This order is important to prevent cross-contamination and ensure food safety. Fish fillets should be stored on the top shelf because they are more likely to drip and contaminate other foods. Ground beef should be stored below fish fillets as it can also drip and contaminate other foods. Chicken breast should be stored at the bottom to prevent any potential drips from contaminating other foods.

    Correct Answer
    D. Ultra High Temperature/UHT foods NOT aseptically packaged
    Explanation
    Ultra High Temperature/UHT foods that are not aseptically packaged must be stored at an internal temperature of 41 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. This means that these types of foods are highly perishable and can spoil quickly if not stored at the correct temperature. It is important to follow proper storage guidelines to ensure the safety and quality of these foods.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A can of strawberries dated 8/10 is stored in front of another can of strawberries, dated 8/30.  This is an example of

    • A.

      FIFO

    • B.

      HACCP

    • C.

      Storage prevention

    • D.

      Can rotation

    Correct Answer
    A. FIFO
    Explanation
    FIFO stands for "first in, first out" and refers to a method of organizing and using inventory or food products based on their purchase or production date. In this scenario, the can of strawberries dated 8/10 is stored in front of the can dated 8/30, indicating that the older can should be used or sold first before the newer one. This practice helps to ensure that products are used in the order they were received, minimizing waste and ensuring freshness.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    “Flow of food” refers to the

    • A.

      Amount of time food is left in storage.

    • B.

      Proper food-storage methods.

    • C.

      Path that food travels through an establishment.

    • D.

      Amount of time it takes to prepare a dish.

    Correct Answer
    C. Path that food travels through an establishment.
    Explanation
    "Flow of food" refers to the path that food takes as it travels through an establishment. This includes all the steps involved in the handling, preparation, cooking, and serving of food. It encompasses the entire journey of food from the moment it enters the establishment until it is served to the customer. Proper food-storage methods, the amount of time food is left in storage, and the time it takes to prepare a dish are all important factors within the flow of food, but they are not the sole definition of it.

  • 5. 

    Which of the following practices would prevent cross-contamination?

    • A.

      Designating color-coded cutting boards for beef, poultry, and produce

    • B.

      Cooking poultry to 165ºF (74ºC) for 15 seconds

    • C.

      Storing flour in the dry-storage area

    • D.

      Hiring a pest management organization to rid your establishment of cockroaches

    Correct Answer
    A. Designating color-coded cutting boards for beef, poultry, and produce
    Explanation
    Designating color-coded cutting boards for beef, poultry, and produce would prevent cross-contamination because it ensures that different types of food are not being prepared on the same surface. This reduces the risk of bacteria from one type of food contaminating another type of food. By using separate cutting boards for each type of food, it helps maintain food safety and prevents the spread of harmful bacteria.

    • A.

      Refrigerate it before inspecting it.

    • B.

      Check the temperature and quality before accepting it.

    • C.

      Store it with other recent deliveries.

    • D.

      Take it out of its original packaging before storing it.

    Correct Answer
    B. Check the temperature and quality before accepting it.
    Explanation
    When receiving a delivery of food for your establishment, it is crucial to check the temperature and quality before accepting it. This is important to ensure that the food is safe for consumption and meets the necessary standards. By checking the temperature, you can ensure that the food has been properly stored and is not at risk of bacterial growth. Assessing the quality allows you to identify any signs of spoilage or damage, ensuring that only fresh and safe food is accepted. By conducting these checks before accepting the delivery, you can prevent any potential food safety issues and maintain the quality of your establishment's food.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Food should be stored

    • A.

      In boxes that are packed tightly together.

    • B.

      Out of sunlight.

    • C.

      At temperatures between 41°F (5°C) and 50°F (10°C).

    • D.

      In boxes that are pushed next to the walls.

    Correct Answer
    A. The process by which cooked food is cooled from 135ºF to 70ºF (57ºC to 21ºC) within two hours and then from 70ºF to 41ºF (21ºC to 5ºC) or lower in an additional four hours, for a total cooling time of six hours
    Explanation
    Two-stage cooling refers to the process of cooling cooked food in two stages. In the first stage, the food is cooled from 135ºF to 70ºF (57ºC to 21ºC) within two hours. Then, in the second stage, the food is further cooled from 70ºF to 41ºF (21ºC to 5ºC) or lower within an additional four hours. This entire process takes a total of six hours to ensure that the food reaches a safe temperature for storage and to prevent bacterial growth.

      Placing it uncovered into the freezer.

    Correct Answer
    D. Placing it uncovered into the freezer.
    Explanation
    Placing food uncovered into the freezer is not a safe method to cool food quickly. When food is placed uncovered in the freezer, it is exposed to the air and can easily become contaminated with bacteria or other pathogens. Additionally, leaving food uncovered in the freezer can lead to freezer burn, which can affect the quality and taste of the food. Therefore, it is important to cover food before placing it in the freezer to ensure safe and effective cooling.
