Health Tip: Food Safety for College Students
Suggestions to prevent food poisoning

By Ann Kent

(HealthDay News) -- As college kids head back to campus, it's important to keep them aware of food safety.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services offers these suggestions to thwart food-borne illness:

  • Wash hands and surfaces often. Travel with hand sanitizer to outdoor events, such as tailgates, when you'll be eating outside.
  • Don't combine foods or use the same plates with raw meat, poultry, eggs or seafood and other foods.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure that foods susceptible to contamination are cooked to the right temperature.
  • Do not leave food at room temperature for more than two hours. Use an insulated thermos if you're taking raw or cooked food on the go.
