Outdoor grilling season is upon us, and it’s important to remember that the shift of food preparation outdoors comes with its own unique challenges. The CDC’s Get Ready to Grill Safely poster serves as an effective food safety reminder for outdoor cooks as they prepare for their outdoor food festivities. You don’t want to give E.coli, Salmonella, and their other pathogenic friends an opportunity to spoil the party!
As many will be wrapping up the summer season with Labor Day weekend fun and eats, this is just a reminder to think about food safety while doing so. Please take a look at this short and to the point video about areas to focus on as we clean, separate, cook, and chill: Every Good Meal Should Start with Food Safety produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
