Health Tip: Packing for a Picnic
Lower your risk of food poisoning
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Picnicking is lots of fun, but nothing can ruin your outdoor meal faster than a nasty case of food poisoning.
The Foodsafety.gov website explains how to reduce your risk:
- Pack any meat, seafood, poultry, sandwiches, summer salads, fruit, veggies and dairy products in a cold cooler.
- Fill the cooler with ice to help it stay colder longer. Store it in a shady spot.
- Avoid opening the cooler to help food stay longer.
