salmonellaToday Show food reporter and MSNBC columnist Phil Lempert recently published an article about preventing E. coli and Salmonella infections. 

Top tips to prevent salmonella and E. coli:

  • Always wash hands, dishes, utensils and counter surfaces often while preparing and cooking all foods
  • When preparing or cooking raw meats, poultry or other foods, clean surfaces and hands with hot soapy water and use paper towels and discard immediately
  • Never use the same plate, tray or utensils for the cooked meat that you use for the raw meat
  • Separate raw meat, poultry, and seafood from other foods in your refrigerator
  • Always cook all foods thoroughly. Meats, poultry, pork and especially ground meats, should be cooked until the juices run absolutely clear.
