Food safety event planned

Have your say

FOOD safety officers from Barnsley Council are urging people to store leftover food safely in their fridge.

The advice comes as part of Food Safety Week, organised by the Food Standards Agency, with this year’s theme food safety on a budget.

Officers are due to set up a stall in The Mall in the Alhambra Centre from 9.30am to 4.30pm tomorrow.

A council spokeswoman said: “Unless you are careful, there’s a chance you can risk food poisoning by not storing or handling food properly.”
