Health Tip – Nov. 22 – Holiday Food Safety

Filed under: Dee Dee |

Food is an important part of many holiday celebrations. But don’t let food-related illness ruin your holiday. Food safety boils down to three basic rules:

1. Keep hot food hot and cold food cold.

2. Keep everything in the kitchen clean.

3. Wash hands frequently.

Refrigerate cooked foods that are not served immediately. If food is left unrefrigerated longer than two hours, the chance of bacterial growth increases.

After the meal, immediately refrigerate leftovers such as meat, dressing, gravy or soups in small shallow containers.
