Is Your Kitchen Really Safe? Information On Foodborne Illness & Preventing It!

If you are anything like me then you probably think that your kitchen is a safe kitchen. I have always believed that as long as you keep your kitchen clean, wash your hands before cooking, and properly store food that you have safe kitchen. I must admit though… I was so wrong, well not that wrong. However it wasn’t until I visited a website called Home Food Safety that I realized how much I did not know about having a safe kitchen.
Home Food Safety is a very warm, family oriented program with a website full of tips and advice on how to create a safe kitchen. They are on a mission to raise consumer awareness about the seriousness of foodborne illness. They provide valuable information on everything from safe grilling to microwave safety for kids. They even have a great lunch box safety checklist for parents to help make sure that your child’s food is safe even when they are away from home. You can never have too much information especially when it comes to keeping a safe home. So I encourage you to visit their website and help spread awarness of foodborne illness.

With that I said I would like to share with you some things you should know about foodborne illness and how to prevent it. "Sharing is caring" and I want to make sure that everyone is aware of this.
What in the world is foodborne illness?
Foodborne Illness/ Disease is a sickness resulting from acquiring a disease that is carried or transmitted to humans by food containing harmful substances. I had no idea that this even existed.
Who can get infected by foodborne illness?

Although anyone can be infected by foodborne illness some people are more at high- risk than others. Those people include pregnant woman, very young children (infants and toddlers), senior citizens, and people with certain chronic illness including AIDS, cancer, diabetes, and liver or kidney disease.

When you are BUYING food:

Remember to always check food labels, never purchase or consume anything after the expiration date, pick up meat/poultry/ and seafood last, make sure each package of meat is wrapped in a separate bag to prevent dripping, and always place meat at the bottom of the shopping cart.

When you are PREPARING food:

Remember to always wash hands before, during, and after meal preparation. Proper hand washing may eliminate nearly half of all cases of froodborne illness and significally reduce the spread of the common cold and flu.

 Other ways to prevent foodborne illness:

By washing your hands often, keeping raw meats and ready to eat foods separate, cooking at proper temperatures, and keeping your refrigerator below 40° F you are making steps to prevent foodborne illness in your home. Also making sure that your children always wash their hands before entering the kitchen.

  1. Thanks for the tips. I hadn't thought of picking up the raw meats last at the store.

    And thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. I have gotten sick from eating at restaurants a few times in my life. I have never gotten sick at home. I have always thought this strange considering all of the rules public food establishments have to follow. I have worked in restaurants though so I might have more knowledge than I realize for home cooking? Great post! We need to be safe with food.
