Prevention works, just not glamorous: health unit stops chicken dinner sales

The Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit (that’s in Ontario, which is in Canada) is standing by its decision to stop chicken sales at the Wallaceburg Knights of Columbus dinner Friday night at WAMBO.

church_supperSupervisor of Environmental Health Rose Marie Arndt says it’s a matter of keeping everybody safe.

“We make sure that all special events vendors are serving safe food in Chatham-Kent,” says Arndt. “We did have an issue with one vendor and we did ask them not to serve a portion of their meal because there were some time/temperature issues with the food.”

Arndt says she believes the issue may stem from a faulty piece of equipment.
