Butterball LLC celebrated food safety month with a children’s coloring contest and a series of employee challenges in hand-washing and food preparation at the company’s Mount Olive, N.C. facility.

Butterball hosted a coloring contest for children of the company's employees. While at work, Butterball employees participated in a hand washing challenge using “magic glowing bug lotion” and a black light to show workers the areas that need extra scrubbing. Additionally, the company posted food safety facts throughout its facility with healthy tips for employees.


“Butterball is a proud leader in food quality and safety and continually strives to strengthen its food safety programs to ensure its products are 100% safe for consumers,” said Anita Colglazier, director of quality further processing at Butterball. “Food safety month provided the opportunity for Butterball to promote the positive practices we implement everyday and encourage our employees to showcase their home food safety precautions as well.”
