Kidneys in the Kitchen: Food Safety

In this episode of Kidneys in the Kitchen we are joined with Tisa Ross, RD, LDN to discuss food safety when preparing meals at home and when dining out. 

During the pandemic we have seen people return to their home kitchens to prepare meals for themselves and their families. Safe food handling is always important for keeping yourself and others safe from getting a food-borne illness. 

In this episode, we discuss the four principles of food safety:

  1. Clean – wash hands often

  2. Separate – Keep Ready to Eat Foods Separate from Raw Meat, Fish, Poultry and Eggs

  3. Chill – Refrigerate Promptly at 40 Degrees F or Below

  4. Cook – Cook to Proper Temperature

These principles apply not only in the home but also when dining out at restaurants, picnics, or barbecues. Stay healthy, stay safe, and we hope you enjoy our video chat.
