Keeping Your Food Safe

Keeping Your Food Safe

With the holidays quickly approaching, keeping foodborne illnesses at bay are a must. As you begin to pull out those favorite holiday recipes, there are a few things to keep in mind that can help prevent foodborne illnesses from ruining your holiday cheer.

The CDC reports that one in six people get sick from a food illness, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die each year.

Things to consider when keeping your food safe are:

Food temperature: Keep your food hot if it's supposed to be hot and cold if it's supposed to be cold. Danger arrives when foods are left out in temperatures between 41 to 135 degrees for more than two hours.

Cleanliness: Keep your hands clean. Wash hands before food preparation and between tasks.

Raw Foods: Prepare raw ingredients separately from other foods.

Take care of your family this holiday season by following the food safety tips above. These tips will help you avoid unnecessary doctor and hospital visits. At Aria, we work hard as your caring neighbor to keep you and your family healthy.
