How do I keep my family safe when cooking at home?
The most important food safety principles are:
-Safe cooking and holding temperatures for foods. For example, Burgers, chicken and eggs have different cooking temperatures (155ºF, 165ºF and 145ºF respectively). Also try to keep food out of the “Danger Zone” (42ºF to 134F) Cold foods should be kept at or below 41ºF and hot foods should be kept at 135ºF or higher whenever possible.
-Hygiene, for example washing your hands when switching from raw meat products to ready to eat foods or after handling pets or using the restroom.
-Avoiding cross contamination of raw meat products with ready to eat foods, this includes utensils, cutting boards, and sinks. Visit this sight for more information Fight Bac!
