There are an abundance of questions and understandable concerns regarding the outbreak of the Coronavirus, especially in Washington State. Food Safety is one of them.
At Angus Brands, we want to assure our customers that we continue to go above and beyond USDA Food Safety mandates, incorporating our other four in-house Safety & Sanitary Policies, including basic Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s). Rest assured that the virus spread has no impact on food, food preparation, or food consumption. Additional information that supports this fact is available via this article from Meat & Poultry. At this time, we’ve also not had any interruption in our supply chain from our current vendors.
Additionally, we have guided our employees so they can know and understand the difference between a common cold, the flu, or if they have symptoms of this virus. We are all in at Angus Brands to get through this temporary crisis. Should any of you have need of further help, information, would like copies of the article I’ve referred to, and/or would like further information from the United States Department of Agriculture to post in your establishments, please let us know. We feel this virus crisis will be a passing setback, especially for our business, but we’re also #SpokaneStrong!
