Food Safety Tips for Meat!!!!
« on: January 13, 2008, 02:10:37 PM »
Always focus on food safety when you're feeding family and friends. Besides thoroughly cooking hot dogs and hamburgers, here are some other food-preparation caveats to keep your guests healthy.

Bacteria can spread from one surface to another; it's called cross-contamination. Bacteria in raw meat juices can contaminate foods that have been cooked safely or raw foods that won't be cooked, such as salad ingredients. Bacteria can also be present on equipment, hands, even in the air.
To avoid cross-contamination, wash your hands with soap and hot water before and after handling raw meat. Don't reuse packaging materials. Use soap and hot water to wash utensils and surfaces that have contacted raw meat. Don't put cooked burgers back on the same platter that held the raw patties.

If using frozen hamburger, keep it cold while thawing. The best method is to thaw it slowly in the refrigerator. To defrost more rapidly, put the meat in a watertight plastic bag in cold water. Cook immediately or refrigerate after thawing. Do not refreeze.

Do not reuse marinade or basting sauce without reheating it to the boiling point.

If eating outdoors when the temperature is 85 degrees or higher, do not leave meat out more than an hour.

Meat and poultry shouldn't be brought to room temperature before cooking, though the meat browns better that way. Bacteria grow when food is in the danger zone of between 40 and 140 degrees.

Marinating time in the refrigerator should not exceed the recommended storage time for fish, poultry and ground meats (1 to 2 days). Marinades don't destroy bacteria.

It isn't necessary to wash raw chicken before cooking it. Any bacteria will be destroyed by cooking. But, for aesthetic reasons, you may want to rinse off pink juices with cool tap water and pat dry with paper towels.

Never brown or partially cook chicken to be refrigerated and grilled later; any bacteria present won't have been destroyed. It is safe, however, to partially precook or to microwave chicken immediately before transferring it to the hot grill to finish cooking.

Keep raw eggs, meat, poultry, seafood, and their juices away from foods that won't be cooked. Take this precaution while shopping in the store, when storing in the refrigerator at home, and while preparing meals.Set your refrigerator at or below 40F and the freezer at 0F. Check both periodically with an appliance thermometer.

Foods play an important role in our body. So always eat good and healthy foods at home. Foods are so rich in fiber, minerals and vitamin. So it's very helpful for health.
