Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Food Safety Tips
Here are summer food safety tips to help fight bacteria from the Cherry Hill Mayor's Wellness campaign:

  • Always wash your hands with hot soapy water before and after handling food.
  • When marinating, keep food refrigerated. Don’t use sauce that was used to marinate raw meat or poultry on cooked food.
  • Use a meat thermometer to insure that food reaches a safe internal temperature.
  • When taking foods off the grill, do not put cooked food items back on the same plate that previously held raw food.
  • Pack plenty of ice or freezer packs in your cooler to insure a constant cold temperature. A full cooler will maintain cold longer than a partially filled one.
