Food Safety Tip of the Day

Marinating mandate

IAFP - cross contamination icon

Sauce that is used to marinate raw meat, poultry, or seafood should not be used on cooked foods, unless it is boiled before applying. The raw meat, poultry, or seafood may have illness-causing bacteria present on the surface, which could contaminate the marinade. Bringing the marinade to a rolling boil will kill any pathogens that may be present.
