Customer health is vital for any industry. A problem commonly found in restaurants, which is easy to miss, is bacteria located in the linens.

This is easy to look-over as bacteria cannot be seen by the naked eye on restaurant linens. However, this can cause customers to become sick & the restaurant risks getting sued or closed down due to unclean restaurant linens.

Some of the bacteria found in dirty restaurant linens are:

  • Coli – The E. Coli bacteria that can cause food poisoning. These effects include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, gas, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, or a fever.
  • Aureus – The S. Aureas bacteria may cause skin infections, boils, scalded skin syndrome, lung infections or pneumonia, brain infections or meningitis, bone infections or osteomyelitis, heart infections or endocarditis, or even life threatening blood infections like Toxic shock syndrome
  • Listeria – The Listeria bacteria may result in muscle aches, fever, flu-like symptoms, nausea, diarrhea, headache, confusion, stiff neck, tremors, or loss of balance. If the infection spreads to the brain then the individual risks cranial nerve palsies, encephalitis, meningitis, meningoencephalitis, or cerebral abscesses.
