Cookouts present special food safety concerns—marinades, eating outdoors, basting foods. Keep summer meals easy and safe with these grilling safety and safe food handling tips:

  • After marinating meat, poultry or seafood, discard the marinade. This is easy if you marinate the food in a large resealable plastic food storage bag. Just toss the bag.
  • To use marinade as a dipping or basting sauce, set aside a portion before adding raw food.
  • Always wash hands thoroughly in hot, soapy water after handling raw meat, poultry or seafood.
  • Let meat, poultry and seafood cook on the grill for at least 5 minutes after the last brush with basting sauce. This prevents contamination because the brush was probably used on the raw food.
  • Discard leftover basting sauce that has been in contact with raw meat, poultry or seafood.
  • Test meat, poultry and seafood for proper doneness. Here are temperature guidelines:
  • Use clean plates to transfer cooked food from grill to table. Never place cooked food on the unwashed plate that held raw food.
  • Eat grilled foods while they are hot. Keep food covered until ready to serve.
  • Use separate serving utensils for meat and salads.
  • Discard food after 1 hour in the sun.
