The holiday season is the time to share good times with family and friends. It is not the time to share foodborne illness!
While food safety is important every day of the year, extra emphasis is given during the holidays because of large gatherings and lots of food being served.
Many resources on holiday food safety can be found at www.ksre.k-state.edu/foodsafety/topics/holiday.html. This includes giving food to food pantries and mailing food to family and friends. Quantity cooking resources can be found at www.ksre.k-state.edu/foodsafety/topics/preparation.html.
Don’t wash any poultry or meat!
