Happy Thanksgiving: How to Avoid Food Poisoning

November 27, 2013

Frequent hand washing is the very best way to prevent the spread of germs.  

Washing your hands is also the best way to make sure that any bacteria living on raw turkey does not make its way to other surfaces where it may be subsequently introduced into your family’s gastrointestinal systems. 

Additionally, the proper handling and cooking of your turkey will help prevent food poisoning. 

Learn about safely preparing your holiday meal by checking out The Center for Disease Control’s web page dedicated exclusively to the preparation of a Thanksgiving turkey.

Nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like not giving your loved ones food poisoning.
