Food Safety Education

September is Food Safety Education Month and a good time to remember that the best way to prevent getting sick from food is to prepare and handle food correctly.

There are more than 250 foodborne diseases. Foodborne illness can be particularly dangerous for older adults, young children, pregnant women, and those with weakened immune systems.

You can be a Food Safety Superhero by always following these Four Steps – Clean, Separate, Cook, and Chill –  to protect you and your family from food poisoning.
