  The Spring Festival is approaching. In order to guide consumers on food safety during the holiday, the Jiangsu Provincial Market Supervision Bureau issued the following consumer reminders.

   1. Don’t forget about epidemic prevention and control when you eat out. During the holiday season, the local epidemic prevention and control requirements should be strictly observed, unnecessary consumption going out should be reduced, and public places with dense populations should not be visited as far as possible. When dining out, be sure to wear a mask, and actively cooperate with the staff of the catering unit to check the body temperature and show the health code to prevent and control the epidemic.

  Second, pay more attention to buying new year’s eve dinner. When purchasing New Year’s Eve dinners, choose central kitchens, large restaurants and other qualified and reputable catering units to check whether the food packaging is airtight and whether it is kept warm or refrigerated as required. Try not to purchase cold dishes, raw foods, cold processed pastries and other high-risk foods. After purchase, store them in accordance with the labeled storage conditions, separate raw and cooked, and eat as soon as possible.

   3. Family dining must be strict. For those who purchase imported cold chain food, scan the”Jiangsu Cold Chain” QR code for relevant information. Wash the ingredients, cook the dishes thoroughly, and ensure the boiling time for large pieces of meat, poultry, etc. Knives, cutting boards, and tableware should be separated from raw and cooked, thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, and washed in time during processing to avoid cross-contamination. Put the leftover food in the refrigerator in time, reheat it thoroughly when you eat it again, and stop eating immediately if it is abnormal.

   Fourth, rational consumption creates a new style. Consume scientifically and rationally, consciously resist food waste, practice the”CD Action”, and eliminate”waste on the tip of the tongue.” When gathering meals, use public spoons and chopsticks or implement a meal sharing system to reduce the use of disposable tableware. Actively respond to the Yangtze River ban on catching and prohibit the trade of wild animals and their products, and resolutely abandon the bad habits of overeating wild animals. Match your diet reasonably, avoid overeating, match meat and vegetables, balance your diet, eat more healthy foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits rich in fiber and vitamins.

   Finally, consumers are reminded that if they feel unwell after eating purchased food or dining out, they should seek medical treatment in time, keep relevant information, and call 12315 for complaints.
