BRING SOAP TO WASH HANDS

Always wash hands before and after handling food. Soap and water is best - hand sanitizer will do if running water isn't available.

DON'T LET FOOD SIT OUT!

Perishable foods should not be left out of refrigeration for more than 2 hours - reduce that to just 1 hour on a hot day (>90°F)!

KEEP RAW MEAT SEPARATE

Keep wrapped raw meat and poultry separate from cooked foods, fruits and vegetables.

HOT CAR? NO COOLERS IN TRUNK!

Transport coolers in the air conditioned passenger compartment, not in a hot trunk. On a hot day (+90°F) don't let food sit in the car for more than 1 hour.

PACK PLENTY OF ICE

Pack lots of ice or ice packs in your cooler to keep food cold. Leftover food is safe only if the cooler still has ice in it. Otherwise, discard leftovers.

USE A FOOD THERMOMETER

Keep food chilled in summer - even on the way home from the store!
