Don’t Forget about Food Safety!

Leftovers are for most of us a sign of delightful foods we can enjoy again. Make sure your Thanksgiving meal doesn’t make you and your loved ones sick!

Food Safety Tips for Thanksgiving:

– Turkey should be cooked to at least 170 degrees before being served.

– All foods meant to be chilled should be put into the refrigerator within 2 hours of sitting in the “Temperature Danger Zone” of 40-140 degrees. Don’t leave leftover sitting out for supper.

– When you reheat leftover foods, make sure you get them to at least 165 degrees before serving them again.

– After about 7-10 days, discard any leftovers that haven’t been enjoyed or frozen.
