  • Keep it clean: Before you eat or handle food, wash your hands, and food prep tools and surfaces.
  • Cook to the right temperature: Use a food thermometer to check. 165° F for chicken and 160° F for ground beef.
  • Watch the clock:  Throw out perishable food sitting at room temperature for more than two hours.
  • Keep hot foods at 140° F or warmer and cold foods at 40° F or colder.
