Don’t want to accept the delivery of food borne illnesses in your favorite summertime meal? Call Eagle Express for your food deliveries, and follow these simple tips for keeping food poisoning off the menu:
Wash your hands: In fact, this is the first and the last step in food preparation and serving. It’s also a step that should be taken multiple times during the process. Wash frequently.
Wash your counters and utensils: Hot, soapy water works best for workspaces and utensils. This should be done both before and after use.
Keep foods separate: Keep your meats and vegetables separate. For even more protection, designate different cutting boards in your kitchen for these two groups.
Thaw properly: Buying in bulk and freezing portions is a great money saver, but be sure you thaw your food properly. Food should thaw in the refrigerator and be used immediately. Never re-freeze once they’re thawed through.
Temperature control: For both thawed and fresh foods, consider the appropriate temperature control before cooking. As our Eagle couriers know well- temperature control is an important part of food safety. Don’t leave cold foods on the counter. And once you’re done eating refrigerate leftovers promptly.
Cook thoroughly: Check the USDA website to verify the appropriate internal temperatures for your favorite foods. This is the best way to prevent foodborne illness.
Know your risk factors: Some folks are more prone to food poisoning than others, and should take extra precaution. These include young people, old people, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women.
Food poisoning is common and preventable. Don’t be one of the millions of Americans who find themselves suffering from the effects of foodborne illnesses. Give yourself a head start on safe food handling by hiring a professional and knowledgeable transportation team to move your time and temperature sensitive food distribution in DFW.
