Be Healthy: Food Safety Tips

Some illnesses can be caused by bacteria that grow on your food and in your kitchen. Follow these tips to make sure that your food is safe and you are healthy:

  1. Clean – Wash your hands with soap before making and eating food. Rinse fruits and vegetables before using them with tap water. Wash counter tops often with hot, soapy water.
  2. Separate – Use a cutting board when cutting fruits and vegetables and a different cutting board for cutting meat. Wash your knife with hot soapy water each time you cut a new food.
  3. Cook – Meat should be cooked to 165-180°F (72-82°C). A meat thermometer can be used to check the temperature of the center of the meat.
  4. Chill – Foods in the refrigerator, like milk, eggs, meat, fruits, and vegetables, should feel cold. Frozen foods should feel very cold.
