Reminder to Properly Handle and Cook Poultry
Each year, thousands of Washington residents become sick because of food that is prepared in an unsafe manner. Follow these precautions to help prevent foodborne illness from poultry:
- Keep raw poultry separate from other foods (especially fruits and vegetables) in your shopping cart, grocery bags, and refrigerator. Put poultry into a plastic bag to prevent drips that may contaminate other food.
- Be careful not to let drippings from poultry, packaging, cutting boards, or utensils, contaminate dishes or other surfaces in your kitchen. Cross-contamination can be a source of illness for anyone, even people who don’t eat poultry.
- Always wash your hands after handling poultry.
- Use warm water, soap and paper towels for hands and a mild bleach (1 teaspoon bleach per gallon of water) solution to sanitize utensils, cutting surfaces, and countertops.
- Keep raw poultry and anything it comes in contact with separated from other foods.
- Be sure poultry is thawed before cooking. Frozen or partially frozen meat is easy to undercook.
- Cook poultry to 165 degrees F.
