  Food Safety WIDGET - Recalls, Alerts and Tips

Some foods are more frequently associated with food poisoning or foodborne illness. With these foods, it is especially important to:

  • 10195_meats.pngCLEAN: Wash hands and food preparation surfaces often. And wash fresh fruits and vegetables carefully.
  • SEPARATE: Don't cross-contaminate! When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs, keep these foods and their juices away from ready-to-eat foods.
  • COOK: Cook to proper temperature. See the Minimum Cooking Temperatures chart at for details on cooking meats, poultry, eggs, leftovers, and casseroles.
  • 10195_market.pngCHILL: At room temperature, bacteria in food can double every 20 minutes. The more bacteria there are, the greater the chance you could become sick. So, refrigerate foods quickly because cold temperatures keep most harmful bacteria from multiplying.
