GRILL SAFETY 101 101 Did you know your risk for a foodborne illness increases during the summer months? Prevent the "24-hour bug" from visiting your household with these steps: USE IT, THEN LOSE IT Don't infect your food with bacteria by reusing cutting boards, utensils, plates or marinades that come into contact with raw meat. Cut meats on their own cutting boards with their own knives, away from the cutting boards and utensils used with other foods. Switch over to clean utensils, plates and unused marinades as you serve meats off the grill. KNOW YOUR TEMPERATURES Prevent bacteria from basking in the summer heat by following the recommended cooking temperatures below. Remember: the only way to truly verify you reached the correct temperature is with an instant-read food thermometer! Be mindful of cooking temperatures when grilling different foods. For example, cook chicken away from, and below, other foods because its juices could contaminate those with lower cooking temperatures such as hamburgers and hot dogs. 2 2 3 3 1 1 Have a question for Big Y's dietitians?
