Don’t Rinse Your Meat……….

For one thing, water won’t remove many dangerous pathogens in the first place. For another, running water over raw poultry and other meat may also contaminate your sink and other kitchen surfaces with bacteria. If you’re worried about food borne illness, the best measure to take is cooking your meat thoroughly and testing it with a meat thermometer—at least 145° F for steaks, roasts, chops, and fish; 160° F for ground beef or pork; and 165° F for poultry. I agree 100% with this.

Make sure the chicken is done…………..

Don’t risk serving under-cooked chicken. When in doubt, make a small cut into the thickest part so you can be positive that it’s no longer pink inside. You can also use a meat thermometer to check if your meat has reached a safe internal temperature: 180° F for a whole chicken, and 170° F for breasts.

Fresh Seafood………..

Fresh seafood should smell fresh and mild, not fishy or sour. A smell like ammonia means it’s spoiled and you shouldn’t purchase or eat it.

Dented cans………..

A small dent in a food can should be okay but throw out any can that’s dented along the side seams or top seam or a deep dent anywhere on the can. Bacteria may have snuck in along these places. Also never buy a can that’s swollen or bulging, for that’s a sign that bacteria is brewing.

Thaw it, use it………

 

Always use any thawed meat or poultry quickly, and do not refreeze it, since this will increase the risk of food poisoning when the meat is eaten.

When grilling remember………

 
Wash everything after handling raw meat, and don’t reuse the plate that you used for holding or preparing uncooked meat. Food safety first!

Expiry Dates……

 
Expiry dates on cans, bottles, and packages are not are not food safety dates. They’re food quality dates determined by the manufacturer. That give you an idea when the food was packaged and help you guessimate when it might spoil. But they are not carved in stone.

Thank you to Jimmy J. for passing this hint along……..

 
Cool already cooked foods in the refrigerator before freezing. Cooling them quickly prevents bacterial growth.

A food safety hint when grilling…..

 
Remember when taking foods off the grill, put them on a clean plate, not the same platter that held raw meat.

A good food safety hint….

 

Always thaw chicken in the refrigerator or in the microwave versus leaving it out at room temperature. When you thaw it in the microwave, you cook the meat immediately. Never partially grill and finish cooking later; doing it all at once will destroy harmful bacteria.
