Health Tip: Grilling Food 101
(HealthDay News) -- Summer is prime time for food poisoning, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As temperatures rise, foodborne germs flourish.
To have a safe and enjoyable grilling season, the CDC recommends:
Separate raw meat and poultry from other groceries.
Chill meat, poultry and seafood until ready to grill.
Wash your hands and work surfaces before and after cooking.
Cook meat hot enough to kill harmful germs.
Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of cooking.
