Tips for Food Safety
¨ Wash your hands with soap and warm running water before you handle food.
¨ Use hot, soapy water to clean cutting boards, knives and anything else that touches meat.
¨ Wash the counter top, cutting board or plate used for raw meats before using it again. Spray with a bleach mixture and rinse.
¨ Regularly wash dish cloths and towels with hot, soapy water.
¨ Thaw frozen foods in the fridge or microwave, not on the counter or "thaw" pads. Foods thawed in the microwave need to be cooked right away.
¨ Cook meat and poultry well. Juices run clear when well cooked.
¨ Cook fish until it flakes with a fork.
¨ Put leftovers in the fridge right away.
¨ Never reheat leftovers more than once.
¨ Throw away moldy foods such as bread and cheese. These are not safe to eat.
