Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has launched a campaign urging families to be extra vigilant with food safety over the Christmas season, encouraging people to ensure effective safety practices are used to minimise the risk of illness.

The message is being delivered via advertising on social media, radio and on billboards in busy public places, using a series of images showing the ill effects of food poisoning, under the headline ‘Christmas isn’t so magical with food poisoning’.

FSS has also produced a Christmas food safety checklist, highlighting the best ways of reducing the risks of food poisoning.
