You can't be too careful

From eNews, January 22, 2004

Food may be "finger-lickin'" good, but keep those licked fingers out of the food you're preparing. And, if like all good cooks, you taste as you go along, use a clean spoon every time. The University of Minnesota Extension Service offers these tips on preventing food contamination while you cook.

For more tips on safe food handling, see http://www.extension.umn.edu/info-u/nutrition/Bj775.html or call Info-U, the University of Minnesota's prerecorded household-tip service, at 612-624-2200 or 1-800-525-8636.
