Food Safety Talk 207: Keeping Food Out of Toilet Rooms

This episode was recorded in February, back before stay-at-home orders, school closures and the recognition of a global pandemic. We ended up recording a couple more episodes after this that we put up because of timeliness. This one is a bit of a mess with interruptions and edits, sorry. In this episode Don and Ben deal with dog sounds, talk about British comedy shows and other things they are watching. The guys then talk about a guest pitch from someone not named Ray Romano. The guys do a deep dive on ghost kitchens and the challenges regulating them. They then talk about issues related to using consumer food purchase data to help with outbreak investigations. No deliberation, just conversation. The guys talk about how they consume news, where they stay up to date on food safety and other things. The episode ends on some listener feedback related to free venison.
