Streptococcus or “Strep” cause an infection. It is typically acquired from food handlers’ coughs or sneezes contaminating food that is then served without further cooking. The method of human transmission makes it hard to pinpoint specific foods that are most affected.

How to Prevent

Quarantine infected kitchen workers and prevent them from handling food. Observe proper temperature control and thoroughly cook all foods. Practice good hygiene.
