Food safety (Feel Good Facts campaign)

Feel Good Facts is a new campaign aimed at reminding Queenslanders to use healthy habits all year round.

It’s a handle for a series of quick little animations that bring to life all our different health facts and healthy habits, where there tends to be a gap between knowledge and behaviour.

They are fun-sized chunks of information giving tips on how to make the Queensland life feel even better.

The issue

Food safety

The Chief Health Officer has declared outbreaks of Salmonella and Campylobacter as a state-wide issue, which is in accordance with the Health Service Directive: Management of a public health event of state significance.

There were 4,476 cases of Salmonella notifications received during the 2016/17 financial year. This was 8% lower in comparison to the 2015/16 (4,853 cases) and 22% in 2014/15 (5,570 cases) financial years respectively.

The campaign

The campaign aims to remind adults to adopt healthy habits in their daily lives, as well as, be role models to children to help them build healthy lifelong behaviours and practices

Food safety is one of the key behaviours featured in this series of Feel Good Facts.

Defrosting meat

Transcript: Defrosting

MUSICAL STING: Feel-Good-Facts (sung)

MUM/VO: Tips to make the feel-good Queensland life, feel even better.
When you’re defrosting food, don’t place it on the bench.
Put it in the fridge to help stop bacteria growing.
The best place is on the bottom shelf, on a plate so the juices don’t drip onto other food.
