PLAY IT SAFE AND AVOID THE YELLOW FLAG
Safety is also an important ingredient on any game day menu. Follow these tips to stay safe in the kitchen:
- Wash your hands – Always wash your hands BEFORE starting to prepare food and in between tasks.
- Plan ahead – Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator for the recommended amount of time (for every 5 pounds (2kg 270g) of large frozen food, allow 24 hours of refrigerator thawing time).
- Cook to temperature – Cook raw meat products to the minimum internal temperatures as stated on the product packaging, by inserting a thermometer at several spots.
- Store and reheat safely – Leftovers must be cooled to below 70°F (21°C) within 2 hours, and then to 41°F (5°C) or below within 4 hours.
