Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind over this weekend!

Be concerned about cleanliness.  Begin with clean hands and clean surfaces.  Be certain that anyone handling food, including your guests was their hands frequently.

Keep uncooked meats separate from vegetables and cooked foods.  Be sure to use separate utensils for cooked and raw foods.  Wash your hands thoroughly after handling raw meats.

Use a meat thermometer to be certain you have reached these internal temperatures.  Place the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat.

·        145° for whole cuts of beef, pork, lamb and veal

·        145° for fish

·        160° for hamburgers and other ground beef

·        165° for all poultry and pre-cooked meat like hot dogs

Keep chilled foods cold.  if its warm outside don't let anything sit out for more than an hour.  Keep chilled foods below 40°.


From the entire staff of Palmer Foodservice enjoy a fun and safe fourth of July!!!
