Food Safety Education (7/7)

Public health experts can find teachable moments with foodies online.

“Food safety practices of particular concern included limited appliance thermometer use, unsafe reheating of leftover foods, limited adherence to recommended microwave stand times, failure to separate raw meats from ready-to-eat items while grocery shopping, failure to marinate foods in the refrigerator, failure to adequately cook eggs until they are firm, and irregular hand washing practices. Many of these practices have been found to be common in other studies on the food safety behaviors of young adults (Mayer & Harrison, 2012).
