TO CANNERJIS OF FOODS
Great Care.Should be Taken to Handle
Only Pure and Fresh Meats and
Rock Hill, S. C., .May 22, 1922. 0
The recent publicity given through 11
the press to the food poisoning cases a
caused by the consumption of home- '
canned products makes it imperative Q
that the greatest care and every Lpre- f
caution must be used for canning
foods in the home and for market. We
do not 'intend .for any cases of 2
botulinus or ptonaine .poisoning to oc- a
cur from cannig done among our
members. Such disasters 'have not yet /
arisen and we must maintain our r
record;~therefore, we issue the follow- t
1. -Poisonous compounds are often C
formed duning the process of decompo- t
sition of foods rich in protein by the t
action of certain bacteria. It is of
the utmost importance, therefore, to
use for canning only such meats and
vegetables .as are known to be abso
lutely fresh and clean.
Occasionally p)eo)le are found who t
thinkk the high temperature used in
the canning of foods will make them
safe and even wholesome, although I
putrefaction has begun. This is abso- I
lutely -false.' -While certain disease- I
producing bacteria will be killed by
the canning Qrocess, still mct, unless
it is fresh and -from animals absolite
ly healthy and in pnime condition,
and vegetables, unless they are fresh
from the garden, should never be can
ned. The condition of canned food
when the can is opened should be care
-fully noted. There should be no bad
2. Practice great care in handling
and preparing products for canning,
and work very quickly.
3. Adhere to rules recommending
temperature and time necessary for
safe prodessing as indicated in your
time table. (armers' Bulletin 1211,

4. Cool- all canned .. products as
quickly as possible after processing.
5. 'Keep -canned foods in cool place.
