The Saskatchewan Health Authority says it’s taking steps to ensure an incident involving a tainted roast being served to residents of a long-term care home doesn’t ever happen again.
The health authority says a worker at the Carrot River Health Centre northeast of Saskatoon put powdered hand cleaner into a spice container, but didn’t change the label.
Another employee — not knowing what was really in the jar — used its contents to season a beef roast.
Once the error was discovered, the outer portion of the roast was removed and the rest of the meat was served.
The health authority says it is reviewing its policies to make sure all staff understand the importance of accurate labels on all items. (The Canadian Press)
