Furthermore, pathogens can contaminate the food through unthinkable pathways. , melons, mangoes) can contaminate the inner edible portion during cutting and can easily multiply if the slices of fruit are held at room temperature over a period of time.

Cross-contamination of foods can be avoided by separating cooked and raw foods and preventing contamination of cooked foods by drippings from raw foods. Food handlers should wash their Page 14 hands, cutting boards, and contaminated surfaces as warranted to prevent cross-contamination.
