Are you guilty of not washing your water bottle or reusable straw after every use?

The International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) Annual Meeting and Expo is always one of the highlights of Sterilex’s year, and the 2019 iteration did not disappoint. This meeting provides countless opportunities for attendees to network, discuss the latest issues in food safety, and discover new solutions to move business and food safety efforts forward.
