Useful food safety advice as the football season draws near in the USA
Many fans across the United States have been starved of their tailgating / football opportunities over recent months. But the waiting is nearly over as the NFL kicks off and College football resumes.
There is however, one very important thing that tailgaters across the USA need to be aware of as they contemplate packing up the beer and food for the coming season. That’s food safety at the tailgate, according to a recent report on the Advocate-Messenger website.
“…unsafe food handling practices during your tailgating event could have you sidelined by game time” warns the article’s author Alethea Price.
The piece contains some very useful and important tips to keep food-related disaster at bay, such as
- How to keep cold food cold
- How to keep hot food hot
- Checking hot food temperatures.
Effective hand washing is vital!
Price is particularly keen to emphasise the importance of washing hands before eating and after using those portable restrooms.
“Parking lots don’t have access to running water so bring your own handwash station.”
Go equipped with liquid soap and paper towels and “…encourage your tailgating friends to wash their hands before eating.”
