Safe steps in food handling, cooking, and storage are essential to prevent foodborne illness. You can’t see, smell, or taste harmful bacteria that may cause illness. In every step of food preparation, follow the four steps of the Food Safe Families campaign to keep food safe:

  • Clean – Wash hands and surfaces often.
  • Separate – Don’t cross-contaminate.
  • Cook – Cook to the right temperature.
  • Chill – Refrigerate promptly.
