Summer time means lots of picnics and outdoor gatherings. Here are a few tips to keep you and your family safe from food poisoning.

*Stop Bacteria – be sure to clean your grill after each time you use it.
*Cleanliness Is Key – wash your hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer
*Prep Your Food – do not thaw food on the counter, do not reuse marinade
*Keep Coolers Cool – instead of using ice, which melts, freeze water bottles to pack around the food in a clean cooler
*Have Separate Plates When Cooking – use different plates for before and after cooking to prevent cross contamination of foods
*Know The Temperature – take a thermometer with you to make sure you cook foods to the correct temperature
*Back In The Cooler – be sure to refrigerate any foods that are left out more than an hour, bacteria forms and multiples quickly on room temperature food

Don’t forget to keep your hot foods hot, and your cold foods cold. Slaw, potato salad, or any other cool item needs to be kept on ice, even while serving. These items need to be placed back in coolers quickly.

Follow these safety rules and you will have a great summer picnic with no issues. Get out and enjoy the sunshine!
