America’s Favorite Chef Warns of Food Poisoning Epidemic

0

Summer is in the air which means barbecuing and picnic lunches galore. However, America’s favorite chef has thrown a word of caution to the public of a food poisoning epidemic during the warm season.

According to the US Department of Agriculture foodborne illness peak during the summer months as bacteria grows fastest at temperatures from 90°F to 110 °F, which makes it especially important for people to take precautions. To help people stay safe and have only pleasant memories of summer 2015, Chef Remi has provided 5 tips to help prevent food poisoning.

  1. Wash Hands Frequently
    When it comes to food safety, the frequency of hand washing can never be too much. Aim to wash hands before and after handling food to avoid any transfer of germs and bacteria. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water to rid any bacteria that may be on hands from handling foods such as meat and poultry.
  2. Wipe Surfaces Clean
    While washing meat and poultry bacteria can spread if water is splashed onto surfaces such as kitchen counters and sinks. To prevent the spread of germs wipe surfaces clean with disinfectant or household bleach.
  3. Do Not Refreeze Thawed Foods
    Meats and poultry that have been thawed in room temperature should never be refrozen. This is because germs can grow in foods within two hours unless they are refrigerated. In the same breath, throughout the summer months householders should aim to keep their refrigerators at 40°F.
  4. Cook Foods to Safe Temperature
    Undercooked food is among the most prevalent cause of food borne illnesses. And so estimating whether food is properly cooked is a definite no-no. Meats and eggs should attain an internal temperature of 160°F and poultry should have a minimum internal temperature of 165°F. Temperatures should be taken before removing food from the heat source using a good instant read thermometer such as the Chef Remi Cooking Thermometer. This premium thermometer features an easy to read LCD display and comes in a handy storage case – making it an ideal companion when cooking meat at camps or picnic barbecues.
    One user of the thermometer said: “Chef Remi’s cooking thermometer is a nice addition to my kitchen. I often grill chicken or pork chops and worry about the meat not being fully cooked. Now thanks to this great cooking thermometer I can be more confident that I am keeping my family safe. It works great for steak as well. I can easily tell if the steak is cooked to the desired doneness by checking the internal temperature, eliminating all guesses.”

Taking the above precautions will help prevent food poisoning.

Adam said: Well-made and attractive

I really like these. I had a mesh strainer for my sink and sliced my finger on the mesh. These have no mesh and consist of perforations in stainless steel. I find them much safer. They are solidly made, and they look good. The mesh strainers clog easily, whereas these are easy to clean. I can't believe I'm actually excited about a sink strainer, but after the last brand I had, I really appreciate these. I ordered these after I purchased the Chef Remi kitchen shears. From what I've seen, this company makes solid products. Thanks for making a good product.

I love the grip and how well these wash in my dishwasher on the top rack. And I won't scratch my pots when making gravy! I'm going to need another set for my daughter's new apartment. A+ kitchen tool.

April Forbes said: Best SINK Strainer I've ever used

I'm so happy I bought this Sink Strainer, and to get 2 in one package is even better, since we have 2 sinks. This is the best one I've ever used to date. I'm so happy it catches everything that we rinse off our plates, instead of having to dig stuff out of the drain. I highly recommend this sink strainer to anyone that has ever used the plastic ones and they don't work. The other ones I've used were too small or had too big of holes, so didn't catch everything. Definitely a timesaver and cost saver for a plumber to come out to clean it out. Buy this and you WON'T be disappointed!

I have not been able to try them yet but they are very nice.

Trent Humphries said: Very Sad

The 2 products I ordered appear to be great, however the web site says a free digital thermometer when order is over $25......WRONG It was not sent, nor would anyone reply to my emails!!
