Picnics, barbecues, and potlucks are wonderful ways to celebrate the summer months.
Whatever your plans, take care to prepare and transport food safely to help prevent
food borne illnesses that are so common during the summer months.
Hot Springs, Ark. – Picnics, barbecues, and potlucks are wonderful ways to celebrate
the summer months. Whatever your plans, take care to prepare and transport food safely
to help prevent food borne illnesses that are so common during the summer months.
Bacteria begin to multiply between 40°F and 140°F, so it is important to keep your
food either cold or hot right up to the moment of cooking or serving. The temperature
in between is known as the “Danger Zone” because bacteria multiply more rapidly and
can reach unsafe levels after just 2 hours – 1 hour if the temperature outside is 90° F or above.
Here are a few tips when transporting food:
When grilling, the USDA recommends cooking meats fully to ensure harmful bacteria
is destroyed. Hamburgers and ribs should be cooked to an internal temperature of
160°F. The center should not be pink and the juices should run clear. Ground poultry
should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F and poultry parts, such as legs,
thighs and breasts, should be cooked to 180°F.
