EXTENSION NEWS: Be safe, not sorry, when grilling foods

(Continued)

Don’t take cooked food from the grill and put it on the same plate that held the raw food. After you place the food on the grill, either thoroughly wash the plate and utensils or use a clean plate and set of utensils for cooked food. It is too easy to cross-contaminate cooked food with raw food.

Don’t let food stay out too long. The general rule is to not let perishable food sit out without refrigeration longer than two hours. However, with weather about 90 degrees limit the time to no longer than one hour.
