Food Safety Talk 168: Washed Up in Big Soap

The show opens with a brief tutorial on Wi-Fi signals and how to block them. The show quickly turns to hockey, and Don’s recent appearance on another podcast, before getting in to food safety quickly with a report from Deep Albany, and effective ways to prevent cross-contamination in sandwich shops. The guys reflect on some of the food safety greats they’ve met in the past, before Ben provides his regular segment on Canadian cuisine. Don talks a little bit about a great idea for a food safety tool he was once given. In a different twist on food safety, the guys talk about copper toxicity, and the dangers of making foods with ingredients sourced from the Internet. The show wraps with some listener feedback on a variety of topics. In the After Dark the guys talk about books they are reading, Ben’s new favorite band and Don’s selection for the alphabetically listed 50 most quoted Rutgers experts in the news.
