Prevent Food Poisoning

Healthy Food

Every year, an estimated 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of food-borne diseases.

Tips to Prevent Food Poisoning

Clean
Wash your hands and work surfaces before, during, and after preparing food. Germs can survive in many places around your kitchen, including your hands, utensils, cutting boards, and counter tops.

Cook
Cook food to the right internal temperature to kill harmful bacteria. Use a food thermometer.
