The Richland County Health Department wants you to stay healthy this holiday season. Here's a quick reminder about the importance of food safety, especially with holiday meals in the coming weeks.

Four simple steps you can follow are...

Clean: Everything that touches food should be clean. And always wash your hands!

Separate: A simple way to fight cross-contamination is to use separate cutting boards and utensils when preparing meals.

Cook: In order to assure thorough cooking, use a meat thermometer when cooking hamburgers, chicken, fish and egg dishes.

Chill: Make sure the temperature in your fridge is 40-degrees fahrenheit or below. And zero degrees fahrenheit or below in your freezer.
