  2. Transfer the product sample onto a second spoon, away from the original food container or preparation area.
  3. Sample the product by tasting.
  4. Never re-use used spoons.Use clean and sanitary spoons each tasting. Always use two spoons to ensure sanitary practices are being followed and the product is not contaminated.

The restaurant manager will:

  1. Observe the food tasting practices of employees.
  2. Follow up as necessary.
