4 Simple Steps to Food Safety

Clean

Wash hands, utensils and surfaces often. Germs can spread and survive in many places.

Separate

Raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs can spread illness-causing bacteria to ready-to-eat foods, so keep them separate.

Cook

Cook to the right temperature. Ensure that foods are cooked safely by always using a food thermometer.

Chill

Refrigerate promptly. Bacteria that cause food poisoning multiply quickest between 40°F and 140°F.
