Keep your family and friends safe and healthy with these important tips from the USDA.
DON’T: Store warm leftovers in large containers – they won’t cool fast enough to kill bacteria
DON’T: Serve undercooked (or raw) eggs…make sure stuffing is all the way heated to at least 165 degrees
DON’T: Wash meats – this can increase the risk of spreading bacteria (news to me!)
DON’T: Thaw frozen food at room temperature
DO: Thaw by refrigerating…6hrs per pound
DO: Store leftovers in appropriate size Tupperware
DO: Set your fridge to 40 degrees F and freezer to 0 degrees F
DO: Use one cutting board for produce and one for meats
DO: Wash all produce, even if you are not going to use the skin or rind
And lastly, DO enjoy every last bite…it only comes once a year! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
