Keep Your Food Safe This Holiday Time


 

Your relationship with your mother-in-law is already a little rough, avoid making it worse by making sure the food you serve during holiday gatherings isn't a hot pot of tummy-turning bacteria. If hot or cold food sits out for more than a couple of hours – throw it away. Susan Hendrick, a Food Safety specialist with the Oregon Department of Agriculture, says it's important to keep food really cold or hot and avoid the danger zone where bacteria grows fastest: 40 degrees to 135 degrees. Consider using crock-pots or hot pots and putting cold dishes over ice.
