Health Tip – July 26 – Keep it Clean
Whether preparing food in your kitchen for the backyard grill or putting it all together at the campground, be sure to keep food surfaces clean. And with so many “cooks in the kitchen”, or at the grill, make sure to have plenty of clean utensils and platters on hand.
To prevent foodborne illness, don’t use the same utensils or platters for raw and cooked meats. If you are headed to the park or campgrounds, find out if there is a source of clean water. If not, bring water for preparing and cleaning. Or pack both dry and wet cloths for cleaning surfaces and hands.
