December is National Food Safety Month! During this month, it is important to focus on preparing, serving and keeping food safe. The holiday season is in full swing and no one wants to be stuck in bed sick with preventable illnesses. There are over 200 diseases that are spread through just food alone. In fact, over 420,000 people are killed every year by foodborne illnesses. However, these diseases can be easily prevented. Proper food preparation can prevent almost all foodborne illnesses. To stay healthy through the holidays, be sure to wash your hands, cover all cuts when preparing food, and cook all foods to their proper temperature.
