For Consumers: A Quick Guide to Super Bowl Party Food Safety
The FDA has published this quick-and-easy four-step guide to food safety while preparing food for your Super Bowl party. First, wash your hands. (I know, this seems so obvious, but the problems that are literally right in front of your face are the ones that so many people overlook.) Second, keep raw and ready-to-eat foods separate to prevent cross-contamination. Third, cook foods thoroughly. Finally, keep in mind that it’s always better to prevent problems than to respond to them. (Perhaps the FDA should have put this step first.) The site includes other food safety links to help address specific food safety questions.
In any event, enjoy the game.
