As you fire up the grill this summer, don’t forget to follow these food safety tips and pass them on:

  • Use different cutting boards, plates and utensils to separate raw turkey from other foods
  • Clean all surfaces, including hands, with warm, soapy water
  • Use a meat thermometer to confirm an internal temperature of 165 degrees
  • Never reuse marinade as a sauce at the table
  • Discard any food left out for more than two hours

Happy Grilling!
