Dallas injury lawyer educates on Dallas Personal Injury — Super Bowl Sunday brings penalties on and off the field with increase in food poisoning
Dallas, TX (AmericanInjuryNews.com)–Super Bowl Sunday is one of the largest celebrations in the United States. The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) http://www.fsis.usda.gov/, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) www.usda.gov ,states Super Bowl Sunday ranks second to Thanksgiving as the number one food consumption day in the country. Texans love their American sports, especially football, and take pride in their good food.
Dallas County is known for it’s amazing food and long standing honored traditions. We are urging all Texans to consider the following food safety issues while enjoying the fast approaching Super Bowl Sunday festivities. Penalties should stay on the field, and out of the kitchen. Illegal use off the field can lead to food poisoning including salmonella.
-Illegal Use of Hands-wash your hands before handling food
-Offsides/Encroachment-Keep raw meat and poultry separate from cooked foods
-The Red Zone-cook your food to a high temperature to score big in killing salmonella and E. Coli
-Pass Protection-Keep cold foods cold for when your guests blitz the table for seconds.
-Danger Zone-Keep hot foods hot and refrigerate left overs immediately
One of the best defenses for food safety before kicking off the festivities is to use the plays available to you. The USDA offers and Ask Karen feature so you have access to food safety questions 24 hours a day. Go to www.AskKaren.gov or call 1-888-MPHotline to access a live food safety expert Monday-Friday 10 a.m. To 4 p.m. Recorded messages about food safety play 24 hours a day. Food poisoning can cause serious illness sometimes requiring hospitalization for advanced medical treatment. Innocent Americans also die from food poisoning.
