Fight Bac provides information to help people prevent foodborne illness. The following simple food safety tips can prevent many cases.

Check – for bruising, damage, and the temperature of food. Hot foods should be kept hot and cold foods cold.

Clean – wash hands, cutting boards, utensils and counter tops often.

Rinse – fresh fruits and veggies just before using including skins and rinds that are not eaten. Pathogens on the outside can be transferred inside when you peel or cut through the rind.

Separate – raw and cooked food. Don’t reuse utensils without washing them first.

Chill – refrigerate food promptly. When serving or eating do not keep foods out for longer than 2 hours.

Throw away – bruised, damaged and cross-contaminated foods or leftovers held longer than 4 days.
