You can keep you and your family safe when cooking by:

Wash hands, cutting boards, utensils, and countertops.

Keep raw meat, poultry, and seafood separate from ready-to-eat foods.

Use a food thermometer to ensure that foods are cooked to a safe internal temperature: 145°F for whole meats, 160°F for ground meats, and 165°F for all poultry

Keep your refrigerator below 40°F and refrigerate food that will spoil.
