Here are some COLD FACTS about a HOT TOPIC — FOOD SAFETY
What is food safety anyway?
Food safety is making sure that disease-producing bacteria that may be found on the food we eat do not grow to harmful levels.

Any basic Rules?
These are the important points:
- Keep it clean.
- Cook it thoroughly.
- When it's hot, keep it hot.
- When it's cold, keep it cold.
- Store it quickly and correctly.
- When in doubt, throw it out.
