How can these infections be prevented?

Food handlers should practice careful handwashing after toileting and before food preparation. Food handlers should not have bare hand contact with ice. Persons involved in food preparation who have symptoms of gastroenteritis should be restricted from work until they no longer have diarrhea.

Water supplies should be protected from the risk of contamination by sewage. Plumbing in dwellings and business establishments should be constructed with no cross-connections to prevent sewage from entering the drinking water supply.
