write solemnly about the actions by which the consumers should pay more
attentions on how they consume their food.
consumers must consume a good food to be safe. In order to pursue the food
safety, the food operators must possess a training skills and knowledge in
basic hygiene standards and safety measures of the food preparation. But, in
reality nowadays some of the food operators did not follow the rules
appropriately when it comes to handling the food.

or contamination. Besides, the author tells about the use of toxic pesticides
or insecticides in vegetable and animal rearing that can harm the consumers.

fully agreed with the author that we should encourage our nation to be aware of
food safety especially the new generation. As we all know, a good food can give
us energy and healthy mind. Besides that, the workers who are involved in the
food industry did not take serious action when it comes to the food safety.
They did not wear proper attires when handling the food. For example, at the
school canteen the food is not even covered when there are many flies hovering
around. This shows that the author is really concerned about our generation
future. Food is an important thing in our daily life. So as a consumers, we
must be very sure on how we consume our food.
For the conclusion, I
reaffirmed my stand that food safety is important for our health. Nevertheless,
I also firmly believed that cleanliness and hygiene food can avoid us from
illness. Therefore, Ministry of Health (MOH) should do something that can make
people learn more about food hygiene such as organizing awareness campaign, to
make the Malaysian consume hygiene and clean food.
