Tips for Food Safety

¨ Wash your hands with soap and warm running water before you handle food.

¨ Use hot, soapy water to clean cutting boards, knives and anything else that touches meat.

¨ Wash the counter top, cutting board or plate used for raw meats before using it again. Spray with a bleach mixture and rinse.

¨ Regularly wash dish cloths and towels with hot, soapy water.

¨ Thaw frozen foods in the fridge or microwave, not on the counter or "thaw" pads. Foods thawed in the microwave need to be cooked right away.

¨ Cook meat and poultry well. Juices run clear when well cooked.

¨ Cook fish until it flakes with a fork.

¨ Put leftovers in the fridge right away.

¨ Never reheat leftovers more than once.

¨ Throw away moldy foods such as bread and cheese. These are not safe to eat.

Enjoy eating foods that are health compliant by practicing the above safety tips.

I prefer not to have any leftovers. I rather order enough food or cook enough for a meal.

That is the right way forward in maintaining food safety rules. It will not only reduce loses but also ensure quality.
