Preventing Cross-Contamination

Stop the spread of bacteria in your kitchen

Cross-contamination and the spreading of bacteria is a serious food issue and can be easily prevented. To make sure that cross-contamination doesn't happen in your kitchen, never prepare food on a surface previously touched by uncooked turkey or any other meat. Be sure to thoroughly clean all cutting boards, counter tops and utensils that have come in contact with raw meat. Wash your hands, too, to prevent cross-contamination and spreading harmful bacteria.
