If the buffet has been sitting out for two hours or more without a heat source for your hot foods or a cold source for cold food, call a time-out and remove it from the eating game.

Tip of the Week



When it comes time to host your big-game party, take heed: It's always four-down territory with food safety. Remember: Clean, separate, cook, chill.



If cold foods are left out of refrigeration and hot foods cool down too long, that's poor defense against harmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning. Hot foods should be 140 F or above, and cold foods should be 40 F or below.



The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service recommends the following guidelines for your football feast:



Always wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food. Beware of cross-contamination, and keep the raw meat and poultry away from cooked foods. Use separate plates and utensils in preparing veggies and meat and poultry.



Use a food thermometer to make certain meat and poultry are cooked all the way through to a safe internal temperature:



• Steaks should be cooked to 145 F, with a three-minute rest time;



• Ground beef should be cooked to 160 F; and



• Poultry should be cooked to 165 F.



Keep food cold by nesting dishes in bowls of ice, or use small serving bowls and replace them with each helping. Refrigerate or place leftovers in the freezer within two hours to prevent bacteria from multiplying.
