IT’S PICNIC SEASON! Are you doing everything you can to make sure you don’t get ill from food-borne bacteria?
Follow these tips to reduce your family’s risk of food-borne illness at picnics.
- Take just Enough Food – you won’t have to worry about saving leftovers.
- Keep your Cooler in the Shade – and avoid repeated openings that will warm the contents of the cooler.
