Good Food Safety Tips during family gatherings
If you have ever experienced food poisoning, you already know that you want to avoid that happening again. And one of the heaviest times for food poisoning statistically is when families gather on one specific day of the year - like Thanksgiving (or Memorial Day or the 4th of July pr Labor Day, etc.....). There are high outbreaks because everyone stops to enjoy their families on those days and then they make mistakes with handling their food.....
Because of that, I always want to share tips. Since starting Safe Food En Route, LLC, I have done a few humorous videos about poking your meat (with a thermometer!). Here are a few of the posts that I have put out related to this topic on my Facebook page:
PROOF - I PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH
Seriously though, I think I have found THE BEST RESOURCE I've ever seen for food safety awareness, so I am not going to sugar coat it much more by adding my two cents. I am just going to give you the link. Come back to it any time and search #PokeYourMeat on any social media outlet that you follow as it is eventually going to link you to this blog revealing a great resource put together by the US government.
Have a Safe Holiday Season and please thank a Veteran today!
Until next time, I'll be over here poking my meat.... signing off #JentheFoodScientist
