Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has highlighted the importance of thorough handwashing, in order to prevent food poisoning. This comes after a new survey revealed less than a third (29%) of people always use soap or hand wash and water when they are at home. Additionally, around one fifth of respondents said they spend less time than the recommended 20 seconds washing their hands.
