As this continues to be a great summer for hot weather, remember a few simple tips for keeping your food safe during the BBQs and Picnics.

  • Chill all refrigerated foods at 4 C or less.
  • Cook all foods to the proper internal temperatures (check with a food thermometer).
  • Separate raw foods from ready to eat foods.
  • Wash your hands and food contact surfaces often to prevent contamination.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!
