Food Safety Talkabout—Episode 02 The Fecal-Oral Route

The Fecal-Oral Route | Food Safety TalkaboutEpisode 2 of StateFoodSafety’s Food Safety Talkabout series is a continuation of Episode 1 in which we further explore proper hand hygiene. Watch Episode 2 to learn how to eliminate problems associated with the fecal-oral route. The fecal-oral route most commonly results in Norovirus and is the number one cause of foodborne illnesses.

The FDA defines the fecal-oral route as “a means of spreading pathogenic microorganisms from feces produced by an infected host to another host, usually via the mouth; e.g., contact between contaminated hands or objects and the mouth.”
