Keep Family Food Safe
CLEAN: Wash hands, counters,
and your table often
and carefully.
Bacteria that make you
sick are invisible. Yet they
can spread everywhere in
your kitchen, then to the
food your family eats.
Involve your child with
food safety at home:
❑ Make proper hand washing a family habit:
before and after handling food, and after using
the bathroom, changing diapers, and handling
❑ Wash kitchen utensils and surfaces with hot,
soapy water. Let your child help.
❑ Wash cutting boards and sponges in hot, soapy
water, each time they’re used.
❑ Clean with paper towels; toss them when
you’re done. Wash cloth towels often in the
hot cycle of your washing machine. Make
cleaning fun with colorful towels.
Hang on the refrigerator as a family
reminder. Check ✓ off what you
already do!
SEPARATE: Keep raw and cooked
food separate.
Harmful bacteria
can spread from
one food to others.
Show your child
how to separate
raw meat, poultry,
and fish from other
❑ Keep raw meat, poultry, and fish wrapped, in
sealed containers or plastic bags, so the juices
won’t drip out.
❑ Wash anything (including your hands) that
touches raw meat, poultry, or fish before using
it with other food.
❑ Never put cooked food on the same plate or
cutting board that held raw food – unless you
wash it first.

Fight BAC!
Keep Family Food Safe
CHILL: Refrigerate food right
Cold temperatures keep
bacteria from growing and
multiplying. Your child
can help keep foods cold:
❑ Make sure the
refrigerator door closes.
Together check the
refrigerator –
below 40 degrees
Fahrenheit; freezer –
below 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
❑ Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator or
microwave oven, not on the counter.
❑ Chill foods that spoil. Freeze or refrigerate
leftovers and other cooked foods within two
hours of cooking.
❑ Put leftovers in small, shallow containers to
cool faster.
COOK: Cook food to a safe,
proper temperature.
To kill food-borne
bacteria that can
make you sick, cook
food long enough
and at a high enough
temperature for that
food. Show your child
how carefully you check:
❑ Use a clean meat thermometer to check:
• Cooked hamburgers: at least 160 degrees.
• Whole, cooked chicken: 180 degrees.
❑ Cook eggs until yolks and whites are firm.
❑ Cook fish until it’s not shiny and it flakes
easily with a fork.
❑ Reheat leftovers to at least 165 degrees.
❑ Wash your thermometer with hot, soapy water.
Wiping with a towel isn’t enough.
❑ Be sure your microwaved food has no cold
spots. Turning (by hand or turntable) and
stirring while food cooks helps.
