It is important to keep food safety in mind as you prepare snacks and foods for Superbowl parties.
- 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.
