Food Safety Tip of the Day

Clean your plate.

IAFP - cross contamination icon

Keeping raw and cooked food separate a major step to preventing cross contamination. Never place cooked food back on the same plate or cutting board that previously held raw food. Separate plates should be used for raw and cooked foods because the juices from the raw food can contain illness-causing bacteria that will then contaminate the properly cooked food.
