The pizza is hot, sticky, delicious and dangerous, the Consumer Product Safety Commission of the USA. UU It reminds them of the Americans.
In 2017, an estimated 2,300 people had to go to the emergency room for pizza-related injuries.
They cut themselves cutting pies, they burned themselves in pizza pans and fell in the presence of pizzas.
In its latest data set, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) of the United States. UU Explore all kinds of unthinkable injuries and remind us that even the best things in life can be risky.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission of the USA UU He estimates that thousands of people suffered pizza-related injuries last year, the agency reported in a national tweet from National Cheese Pizza Day.
When we talk about "food safety", we generally refer to how the meat and produce are handled in restaurants and grocery stores.
But Americans perhaps take for granted the safety and dangers of the consumer side of food.
In 2017, there were all kinds of pizza injuries, according to one of the latest CPSC memes in their wonderfully weird Twitter account.
The main reasons why pizza sent people to the emergency room in 2017 were cuts and burns of standard emission.
Many people were also injured by slipping and falling while carrying pizzas, entering, leaving or leaving pizzerias.
Even getting to the beloved portion to accompany him while he rests can be precarious, as some victims discovered when they fell out of bed for the sake of pizza.
The social media naive of the CPSC, Joe Galbo, says he was unfazed by the amount of pizza-related injuries his agency found.
"I used to be surprised by the amount of injuries related to things like pizza or books" (it's 11,880) says Galbo.
"But I think it's a pretty low number considering how many people eat pizza" (about three billion pizzas a year).
He says that, despite their enthusiasm, people should take special care when they are cutting cake, and they always cut the pizza with caution.
Joe Galbo, CPSC's social media specialist, says more attention would help prevent pizza-related injuries
Galbo also advises "making sure you're wearing personal protective equipment," which is the oven and apron mythology industry, and, most importantly, "make sure you eat pizza in a way that does not cause injury." & # 39;
Although his PSA security memes are extravagant and always good for laughter, Galbo reminds us that "there is never a major injury."
Instead, he said that we can consider pizza-related injuries as a reminder of surprising ways that people can get hurt when we do not take simple precautions.
For example, remember a fascinating report from ER about a person who was happily walking in a pizzeria when the disaster happened: they stumbled upon a rug and ended up in the emergency room instead of enjoying the cake they had ordered.
"It's an example of how people could create more secure spaces for themselves," says Galbo.
"If the mat was a little flatter, or it was not where it was, maybe that person would not have gone to the emergency room that day."
Food-related injuries in general are a good reminder that if we have more attention & # 39; Even on the most mundane things, we will have a lower propensity for accidents, says Galbo.
& # 39; Avocados are a great example. People watch videos on how to eliminate the well, maybe they do it once, and they think, "I have this," and then they end up cutting their hands, "he adds.
"Having more attention when interacting with sharp objects with your food would be good for everyone."
