Every once in a while, you dine in a restaurant and they bring out plates that are wet. Do you use them or do you ask for a replacement?
There’s a restaurant practice called wet-nesting, wherein they stack plates before they are completely dry. They then allow the plates to sit for up to two days before being used. Let it be known that this can be a breeding ground for organism such as Salmonella.
So the next time you are given a wet plate, you know what do. Ask for a replacement plate. You won’t want to risk getting sick just because of that. If we know precautionary measures, we’re better off taking note and acting on them. It pays to be observant and be on top of everything when dining out.
