Do you serve rare or medium rare burgers?


If you serve rare or medium rare burgers, you will be familiar with the fact you have to have a warning for customers on your menu. As a result of FSA (Food Standards Agency) customer research, the FSA have produced new wording to be displayed on the menu: –

Burgers cooked rare and medium rare carry a higher risk of food poisoning. Unlike a steak, a burger needs to be cooked through to reduce that risk.  The Food Standards Agency recommends that children, pregnant women and anyone with a weaker immune system have their burgers well done. Please ask us for more information.”

 Of course, you also need a Food Safety Management System (FSMS) based on HACCP to demonstrate you have systems in place to ensure the burger is safe to serve rare or medium rare.
