Check out the 5 easy ways to avoid food poisoning this holiday season!:
Keep Your Fridge at The Right Temperature: Your refrigerator should always be at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Bacteria are likely to grow at temperatures higher than 40.
Shop Locally: When your food doesn’t have to travel far there is less of a chance that it will be exposed to contaminants. Some grocery-store produce can spend weeks in transit!
Sign Up For the Store Membership Card: Buying food at clubs with a membership card can mean that in the event of a recall, your purchase will be tracked and you’ll be notified directly to throw away the recalled product.
Wash All Produce: Always rinse your product when you bring it home. Fruits and veggies are among the top ten contamination-prone foods linked to nearly 40% of all U.S. foodborne outbreaks.
Don’t Rinse Meat, Poultry or Seafood: All this will do is spread the bacteria around your kitchen. As water splashes from the sink to the county, it creates for a contaminated work station! Cook food on high heat to kill any pathogens.
