Food Safety Away from Home

Between school, work and play, we eat many of our meals away from home. Whether it’s a packed lunch, a picnic or restaurant takeout, handling food properly can prevent foodborne illness.

To keep food both delicious and safe, follow these safety guidelines when eating on the go:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Do not keep foods that may spoil out of refrigeration more than two hours (one hour in hot weather)
  • Keep raw meats such as hamburger patties and poultry separate from ready-to-eat items
  • Use a meat thermometer to make sure foods are reheated properly.
