Each year millions of people get sick from foodborne illnesses, also known as food poisoning. Foodborne illness has symptoms similar to the stomach flu: diarrhea, headache, fever, and vomiting.
Follow these four steps to prevent contaminating your food:
1. Keep food, hands, and preparation areas clean.
2. Don’t cross-contaminate.
3. Cook food well.
4. Chill foods by refrigerating them within 2 hours of cooking.
