Eating at desk and Foodborne Illness

Workers who eat at their desk may be exposed to harmful bacteria, putting them at risk for foodborne illness, the American Dietetic Association warned.

According to the ADA survey, 83% of Americans regularly eat at their desks. However, only 36% of survey respondents said they clean their work areas, desktop, mouse or keyboard on a regular weekly basis; 64% said they do this on a monthly basis orĀ less.

A study from the University of Arizona found that desktops have 100 times more bacteria than a kitchen table and 400 times more bacteria than the office toilet seat.
