Common Safety Mistakes That Can Cause Foodborne Illness

 By Neill Abayon

  • Tasting food to see if it’s spoiled — you can’t taste, smell, or see bacteria that cause food poisoning.

  • Putting cooked meat on a plate that previously held raw meat — germs from the raw meat will transfer to the cooked meat.

  • Thawing food on the counter — germs multiply faster at room temperature.

  • Letting food cool before refrigerating it — it only takes an hour or two for bacteria to multiply.

  • Eating raw cookie dough or other foods containing uncooked eggs — uncooked eggs can contain Salmonella or other harmful bacteria.

  • Marinating meat, poultry, or seafood on the counter — again, room temperature is ideal for growing bacteria.

  • Transferring raw meat or poultry marinade onto cooked foods — bacteria from the raw meat will contaminate the cooked food.

  • Undercooking meat, poultry, seafood, or eggs.

  • Not washing your hands often enough during food preparation.
The impostant thing is, washing your hands and keeping your kitchen clean are important — but cooking poultry to 165 degrees is the best way to kill bacteria and avoid foodborne illness.
