Hands clean: Use hot soapy water to clean your countertops, but do not wash any meat or chicken. Raw meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and raw meat can spread germs to the sink and countertops in your kitchen.

Separate: Keep raw and cooked meats, poultry, turkeys, eggs, and seafood separate from all other food items. To avoid germs from the raw meat contaminating foods that are not cooked, use different cutting boards for vegetables and uncooked meats.

Cook: Cook food to a safe temperature to kill any germs that could cause you to get sick. You can’t see the color of food and tell if it is cooked.

Chill: Keep leftovers and perishable foods refrigerated within two hours after cooking. Refrigerate leftovers if it is more than 90 degrees outside. Keep your refrigerator at 40degF or below.

Spotlight on Salmonella

The CDC estimates that Salmonella causes more foodborne illnesses in the United States than other types of bacteria. These illnesses are most common in chickens, but Salmonella can contaminate many foods. In recent years, large Salmonella outbreaks have been linked to ground beef. Federal agencies and partners work together to prevent salmonella illnesses related to chicken or ground meat.

When you prepare your favorite chicken or ground beef dishes, you can help to prevent Salmonella from spreading. You can try a recipe for spiced chicken with food safety precautions. These steps can be added to any recipe to make your meals delicious and safe.

Safety is a crucial ingredient for everyone.

It can be fun to be a home chef. Food Safety Education Month is a time to ensure your kitchen is safe and educate others about preventing food poisoning. These are some resources that you can use:
