Hi jipkhan,

 

This is likely to be detailed/controlled by Local Regulatory Requirements.

 

The attachment / checklist in post 2 of original thread you posted in (see link below) is fairly typical although locations will vary. The US Food Code is another popular source.

this is a parital list of diseases passed through food---depending on your region and rates of infection, you may require a negative test

  • Norovirus
  • Campylobacter
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • E. coli
  • Listeria
  • Yersinia
  • Hepatitis C

Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

Ahem. Strictly, only one of the above is a disease although the other 6 genera certainly include all or some pathogenic constituents. The terminology "X infection" is also in common usage, sometimes (arguably) incorrectly..
