During 2011-2012 the Agency issued updated advice on cross contamination prevention. Three of the House Rules in CookSafe have been updated to introduce this new advice – Personal Hygiene, Cleaning and Cross Contamination Prevention. Minimal changes have also been done to the Introduction and weekly record found in the Records Section.

For caterers using the July 2006 version of CookSafe, please incorporate these sections into your CookSafe system as part of your review process and train your staff in this new information.

A document can be found here with details of the pages to change to update your CookSafe.
