Wildcat Wednesday: Food Safety


The CDC estimates 48 million people get sick, 128 thousand are hospitalized, and 3 thousand die from food borne diseases each year in the United States.  This morning KOAM’s Michael Hayslip talks about food safety especially around the holidays with K-State Extension agent Barbara Ames. 

Here are four basic food safety principles Ames advises every family should use in their home:

  • CLEAN: Wash hands and surfaces often
  • SEPARATE: Don't cross-contaminate!
  • COOK: Cook to proper temperature
  • CHILL: Refrigerate promptly
