The most common causes of food poisoning at restaurants:
Failure to Properly Cook Food
It is important that food be heated to a certain temperature in order to inactivate certain microorganisms that may cause illness. For instance, ground beef must reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees in order to make it safe for consumption, while chicken and turkey must get to the 165 degree mark. Shellfish and other types of fish on the other hand must be cooked thoroughly as it is the one type of food that is most likely to make restaurant patrons severely ill.
It is vital that certain foods do not touch other ingredients or foods as they may contaminate these foods or ingredients and even surfaces, which can then go on to transfer bacteria or viruses to other foods
With the pressure to keep producing food so that certain bottom lines can be met daily, chefs and other workers may be tempted to cut corners in order to meet these targets. They may not wash their hands as often and thoroughly as they should, and they may not clean utensils in the manner in which they should, leading to the development of bacteria and viruses on utensils, surfaces, hands, and eventually, food.
