Independence Day PSA

Published on: 07/03/2015

As the 4th of July holiday approaches, I wanted to share a few quick food safety tips to help you enjoy your holiday to the fullest!


CLEAN: Wash surfaces (cutting boards, knives, counters etc) and hands with warm soapy water

SEPARATE: Keep raw meat separate from foods that won’t be cooked (veggies, fruit, bread, chips etc.) this applies to dishes as well

COOK: Cook meats thoroughly and check temperatures to ensure they are cooked to the desired temperature

CHILL: 2-HOUR RULE! Cream pies, salads, sides and other deserts should find the refrigerator or cooler with ice after being out for no longer than two hours. This doesn’t mean the party has to end, just tuck those perishables away!

Follow these four easy steps and your Independence Day holiday will be off to a great safe start!
