How does canned food affect food safety?
Canned food effectively creates a barrier between the food and outside contaminants. Cans also help to preserve foods by limiting the amount of air and oxidation directly on the food. Alternately cans that are old and/or damaged can produce dangerous bacteria growth such as Botulism.

Canned food is any kind of food that is in a store bought can.
Practically any food can be canned by one method or another. With some foods, it works much better than with others, though. Most fruits, many vegetables, especially corn, bea…ns, beets and carrots can fairly successfully. Some vegetables can be canned successfully from a safety point of view, but are abominable to eat: asparagus and spinach for example. Processed meats can be successfully canned. But all things considered, it seems to work best with fruits and fruit products (juices, pie fillings).
Handling the food and knowing the food are as different as black and white you may know where it comes from and who owned it what it was fed and yadda yadda yadda. but the mas…tery in all cooking is knowing how to handle it, the FDA and states have different regulations to these matters such as raw chicken maybe left out in some states as long as it is used within 15 mins, and in other states it better be in its own container in a fridge hovering around 40 degrees or you could get fine. just go to any search and type in what are the food regulations in what ever state and you can get them for free in a PDF Back to your question yes it can effect others health safety by leaving something out for to long or the biggiest mistake is cross contamination. this means by using one utensil for one thing such as chicken then using it on veggies. There is natural bacteria on alot of foods and with time and heat it can progress into dangerous levels that can make people ill.

Bacteria can rapidly multiply whenfoods meant to be cold get too warm, or conversely, when hot foodsare left out too long to cool. Even produce can be contaminated with E-Coli from improper handwashing. This leads to digestive illness than can land people inhospitals. All fresh produce should be washed, or washed andcooked, before eating. Food preparation requires safety rules too. A counter contaminatedwith bacteria can cross-contaminate to other foods.
