Tip of the Day

Don't Let Harmful Bacteria Crash Your Barbecue

Today is a great opportunity to celebrate with family, friends and great food. Plan on firing up the grill? Make sure you remember home food safety tips to reduce the risk of food poisoning.

  • Before handling food or utensils, always wash your hands with warm, soapy water for 20 seconds, or about the time it takes to sing two choruses of "Happy Birthday."
  • Wash the grill with warm, soapy water to ensure clean and tasty food.
  • Wash produce immediately before grilling to reduce the risk of harmful bacteria.
  • If using leftover marinades, make sure to bring to a boil before brushing on cooked meats.
  • Use separate plates for holding raw and cooked foods.
  • Use a food thermometer to make sure your food is cooked to the proper internal temperature.
