September has been designated as Food Safety Education Month so this week we’ll look at food safety. The four easy lessons of Clean, Separate, Cook, and Chill can protect you and your family.

Today we’ll look at clean –

  • Wash hands, utensils, and cutting boards before and after contact with raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs.
  • Bacteria can spread throughout the kitchen and get on hands, cutting boards, knives, and countertops. Frequent cleaning can keep that from happening.
  • Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds before and after handling food.
  • Run cutting boards and utensils through the dishwasher or wash them in hot soapy water after each use.
  • Keep countertops clean by washing with hot soapy water after preparing food.
