Summer Food Safety Tips


Written by Dr. Karina Martino

With summer already here, we are all more than ready to “grill” anything in our backyard!

Before we even start with our grocery store list, there are certain things that we need to consider and plan ahead of time. We all want to enjoy our grilled meats and veggies; however, there are some specific safety considerations that you need to keep in mind to minimize the risk of contamination.

Basic Food Safety tips are:food_safety.jpg

  • CLEAN: wash hands and surfaces often
  • SEPARATE: separate raw meats from other foods
  • COOK: cook to the right temperature
  • CHILL: refrigerate foods promptly

For specific cooking temperatures, depending on the type of food, check FDA’s website

Additionally, make sure you:

  • Not only separate raw meats from other foods, also, make sure that raw foods are separated from cooked foods.
  • Marinate all foods in the refrigerator, not on the counter. To marinade use food-grade plastic or glass, not metal. Never reuse marinade that has been added to raw meat.
  • Keep hot food hot, at or above 140°F
  • Keep cold food cold, at or below 40°F

Enjoy the season and have a great summer!
