The Oregon Department of agriculture is reminding you to practice good, safe food handling and prepara- tion techniques at all times, but with perhaps a little extra atten- tion to detail for the thanksgiving or Christmas holiday meal. A safe meal can be ensured through proper food handling, prepara- tion, and storage. Slacking off in any of these three areas could spell trouble. Holiday food safety actually begins as you do your grocery shopping. Cross-contamination of foods can take place right in the grocery cart. Make sure food that might be consumed in a ready-to- eat fashion, such as apples, are kept in a bag. The grocery store provides bags for that reason. They also provide bags for meats to make Sure there are no drips that might contaminate other foods. Put groceries away immedi- ately. Don't leave foods on the counter while you try to get other things done. The traditional turkey is a cen- terpiece for the holiday meal. Remember that the turkey thaws from outside in, so the surface temperature is going to be warmer a lot longer which raises the poten- tial for growth of food pathogens. When it comes to thawing, the refrigerator is probably the best practice. The general rule of thumb is one night of refrigerator thawing for every five pounds of turkey. So you need to plan ahead when you have a bigger-sized bird. Contrary to what many people for : The SeniinTl ; (SPS i3 lished ; think, a turkey should not be washed or rinsed off as you begin to prepare it. That only smears or transfers the bacteria onto your hands or into your sink. Immediately throw away any packaging from the turkey and wipe up any drips with a dispos- able item, like a paper towel. It's the cooking of the turkey that will kill the bacteria. ODA recommends the use of a meat thermometer to make sure you get a good endpoint tempera- ture of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. It's also recommended to not put stuff- ing in the bird. It's much safer baked separately simply because you don't easily know what the internal temperature is going to be. It is also unwise to partially cook the turkey the night before, cool it in the refrigerator, and then finish the cooking the next day. Frequent heating and cooling does a good job of promoting bacterial growth. Make sure you have separate cutting boards, separate knives and other utensils when you are handling raw versus ready-to-eat foods. Of course, handwashing is an absolute requirement prior, dur- ing, and after food handling. Reheated leftovers need to reach at least 160 degrees. In general, the rule of thumb on leftovers is only reheat them once and freeze what you won't be using.
