Food Safety Tip of the Day

Take two.

IAFP - cross contamination icon

Cutting boards are one of the most common kitchen items that causes cross contamination. A different cutting board should be used for raw meat, poultry and seafood than is used for preparing ready-to-eat foods like salads and fruits. The produce often is not cooked before being served, so any contaminants will not have a "kill step" prior to consumption.
