  • Microwave:      Meat and poultry thawed in the microwave should be cooked immediately


Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water before and after handling food.

Prevent cross-contamination. Keep raw meat, poultry, fish, and their juices away from other food. After cutting raw meats, wash cutting board, knife, and counter tops with hot, soapy water.

Marinate meat and poultry in a covered dish in the refrigerator.
Do not use the same cutting board for raw meat and other foods.

Ground meats: Cook all raw ground beef, pork, lamb, and veal to an internal temperature of 71 °C
Poultry: Cook all poultry to an internal temperature of 75 °C
