The holidays bring feasts of turkey and ham; delicious sides; and rich desserts. But when prepared and stored improperly, these foods can make you sick. Cut down on the risk of foodborne illness by disinfecting your kitchen countertops before you begin your dinner preparations. When transporting or preparing dishes, keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold until dinner. Put any leftovers in the refrigerator within two hours of serving, and transfer the remnants from opened cans of pumpkin, cranberry sauce, vegetables, or other holiday staples to food-safe glass or plastic storage containers. If you’ve handled raw meat, wash your hands immediately and place all contaminated utensils and non-wood cutting boards in the dishwasher.
