The summer is the time for many people to gather and have cook-outs outside. What many people forget, however, is practicing good food safety while they dine. Jenny Spude of the Kewaunee County UW-Extension Office explains while people understand the dangers of undercooking meat, there are still some food dangers going unrealized.
Spude advises people to keep their cold foods at or below 40 degrees and hot foods at or above 145 degrees.
Spude recommends that food should not be kept out for more than two hours.
