The Melbourne Cup horse race starts in a couple of hours and the twitter-comms types at safe food Queensland have said something, in writing, I’ve never seen before:
“Avoid eating raw foods such as salad dressings and sauces made with raw eggs e.g. mayonnaise, hollandaise and aioli or uncooked foods containing raw eggs e.g. cookie dough, mousse, cheesecake, tiramisu.
“Check to see if sauces or salad dressings are pasteurized.”
The safe food advisory also contains poor attempts at humor such as, “It’s the race that stops a nation so don’t let food poisoning have you galloping!”
