sure to wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap. Even if you don’t feel that you have been
exposed to many germs since your last hand washing, wash them directly before preparing
the food anyway. Anything on your hands can make it into your
food, and because germs and bacteria are too small to be seen, there is always a risk when
your hands go unwashed. Wash Your Hands Thoroughly after Handling
Raw Meat Raw meat contains harmful bacteria that is
only made safe by cooking it to the proper temperature. Every time you touch raw meat, your hands
become a vehicle by which this bacteria can spread. Wash them a few times with warm water and
soap, and be sure to clean under your fingernails or anywhere else the bacteria may be hiding. Be Careful When Pets Are Around Think your pet is too well-mannered to get
into the food when you are not around? Think again. Animals are tempted by food, and leaving meat
unattended in the kitchen is just asking for trouble. Cats have been known to walk across the counter
when their owner has slipped out for even a few minutes, and dogs that are high enough
to reach the counter can make contact with the food as well. Don’t Allow Cross-Contamination Always be vigilant not to allow cross-contamination
in your kitchen. When handling meat, and especially raw meat,
keep it separate from safer foods. Try to prepare fruits, raw vegetables and
other ready-to-serve items before handling the raw meat, in order to cut down the risk
of this type of cross-contamination. Use completely separate parts of the kitchen
to prepare meat, since the raw juices of meat can easily splash other food items that are
nearby. Wash Everything Thoroughly That the Raw Meat
Touches When you cut or otherwise prepare raw meat,
be sure to clean any utensils and surfaces that come in contact with it. It is not enough to wipe it down, even when
used along with soap. Cutting boards and plates should go into the
dishwasher so as to be heated and washed intensely. You can also spritz them with vinegar, then
3% hydrogen peroxide and then rinse them well. Utensils and other items should be stashed
in the dishwasher immediately so they are not accidentally used for any other food preparation. Wash the sink thoroughly as well with soap
and hot water, and then either the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide mix or a bit of bleach. Cooking meat requires knowledge of basic food
safety. It is important not to experiment when it
comes to the safe handling of these particular foods. Follow these guidelines and you will be able
to enjoy a great meal and keep everyone healthy at the same time. Thank you for watching. This video has been made in the video creator,
