Grilling Safety Tips to Avoid Foodborne Illness

Safety steps for preparation of food outdoors:

  1. CLEAN your utensils and surfaces
  2. COOK to the proper temperature
  3. SEPARATE the raw meat from the cooked meat
  4. CHILL the meat that has yet to be cooked, and the leftover food


Always be prepared and bring:

  • Items to keep the surface, utensils and hands clean
  • Plenty of plates and cutting boards to keep raw and cooked meats separate
  • A meat thermometer to ensure that it’s cooked to the proper temperature


When transporting food, ensure it is chilled properly in a cooler with plenty of ice and ice packs.

Use a separate cooler for cold drinks, so that the food cooler is kept closed.


We wish you safe & healthy grilling!
