Using the motto “Check Your Steps,” Food Safe Families would like to get consumers to adopt four very easy steps when preparing food:
1. Clean: Clean kitchen surfaces, utensils, and hands with soap and water while preparing food.
2. Separate: Separate raw meats from other foods by using different cutting boards.
3. Cook: Cook foods to the right temperature by using a food thermometer.
4. Chill: Chill raw and prepared foods promptly.
