For most families, safety is a basic priority when cooking meals. But recent news on E. coli outbreaks in meats and vegetables, contamination of beef and food recalls have caused some concern and confusion about what foods to eat and how to prepare them.
In response to questions on proper food preparation and handling techniques, the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation has offered the following food safety tips:
"Common sense should always prevail when it comes to food preparation," says Danielle Schor, senior vice president of food safety at the IFIC. "One additional tip consumers should always keep in mind is that if they have any doubts about the way a food looks or smells, they should throw it out."
