MARIANNE GRAVELY, USDA FOOD SAFETY EXPERT - FOOD SAFETY TIPS
DON’T FORGET TO SPRING CLEAN YOUR REFRIGERATOR
The USDA Shares Easy Ways to Prevent Foodborne Illnesses Caused by Spoiled Food
Spring has long been the time of year for annual cleaning projects around our homes. USDA is reminding consumers it’s especially important to remember to include your refrigerator, freezer and pantry during spring cleaning routines to avoid foodborne illnesses. Reviewing “sell by” and “use by” dates on many of the items in your kitchen is a good way to do this, and thankfully food safety experts are here to make these clear, as well as to offer tips on where in the fridge certain food items should live in order to stay fresh longer.
Food poisoning is not simply an upset stomach; it is a serious public health threat in America. In fact, the CDC estimates that about 1 in 6 Americans (about 48 million people) could suffer from foodborne illness this year. The result is approximately 128,000 hospitalizations and an estimated 3,000 deaths.
Anyone with questions about food storage or food poisoning can now speak with USDA food safety experts longer than ever before! The USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline has extended its hours and experts are now available from 10am – 6pm ET, Monday through Friday at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) to answer public questions. Consumers can also chat live with a food safety experts in English or Spanish at AskKaren.gov.
