Food Safety Tips
  • Food safety starts with washing hands before handling food and after handling raw meat, eggs or other foods that can cross-contaminate ready-to-eat products.

  • Hand washing steps:
    1. Wet hands
    2. Take soap and lather
    3. Briskly rub hands for twenty seconds
    4. Scrub between fingers
    5. Scrub forearm to just below elbow
    6. Rinse forearms and hands
    7. Dry hands and forearms
    8. Turn off water with paper towel
    9. Discard towel

  • Good sanitizing spray or rinse for cleaning counters/tables: 1 teaspoon bleach to 1 quart water. Prepare fresh mixture daily.

  • Always wash utensils or counters that come in contact with raw eggs, meat, poultry or fish before you use them for ready-to-eat foods such as deli meats, vegetables or baked goods.

  • Refrigerate eggs, milk and other perishable ingredients when not being used at 40 degrees F or less.
