Food Safety Tip of the Day

Seal it

IAFP - cross contamination icon

Use a plate, pan or even a plastic bag defrosting raw meats, poultry, or seafood in a refrigerator. Containing the juices that form during the defrosting process helps to prevent potential cross contamination of other items in the refrigerator. These juices may contain illness-causing bacteria that may contaminate ready-to-eat foods unless otherwise contained.
