Here are some quick tips that you can follow to ensure a safe journey of your food from grocery stores to your table.
Make sure you store your ready-to-eat foods and other raw foods like meat, seafood, and poultry according to the temperature conditions mentioned. This can help to avoid bacterial multiplication.
Before meal preparation, make sure your hands, kitchen surface, ingredients, and utensils are clean and sanitized.
Do not thaw frozen food directly over high flame.
Keep your ready-to-eat food away from meat and seafood to avoid cross-contamination.
Cook your food to the right temperature. Do not overcook or undercook.
Refrigerate your food promptly, especially perishables like dairy. Do not delay the refrigeration of raw/ready-to-eat foods for more than two hours.
Know to identify contaminated or spoiled food.
