Did you know that September is National Food Safety Month? CHD Expert wants to help generate awareness for food allergies and help take a stand by preventing a reaction by taking action, as foodservice is at the core of our business.

This year’s annual National Food Safety Month (NFSM) highlights the increasing importance of food allergen awareness during the month of September. One of the main topics that is being discussed is how to keep diners safe from serious, and sometimes fatal, food allergy reactions, as food allergies have now become a daily topic in the news cycle.

It’s been said that food allergies are increasing and according to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education ) more than 15 million Americans have food allergies. Interestingly enough, there are eight foods that make up 90% of allergies!

Check out this promotional Infographic that has been created to promote these common allergens and how to avoid cross contamination in honor of food safety month. This infographic was created by Tork, National Restaurant Association and ServSafe:
