Happenings in DeFuniak Springs

Healthmark Health Matters Healthy holiday gatherings

Christmas is a time when people like to gather together and celebrate the season. Family and friends get
together and there are lots of office parties. Usually food and drink are found in abundance and whether
someone is hosting or just attending, there are some common sense rules that should not be forgotten.
With large varieties of food being served and left out for hours at the time, food contamination is the big-
gest culprit. Fortunately, most cases of food poisoning can be prevented with proper food handling. To prac-
tice food safety, quickly refrigerate perishable foods, such as meat, poultry, fish, dairy and eggs - do not let
them sit more than two hours at typical room temperature or more than one hour at temperatures above 90 F
(32 C). Put out smaller amounts at a time and kept the rest refrigerated. Platters can be replenished easier
than dealing with sick guests.
Be careful not to cook food too far in advance of the event. Food can be kept for three to four days in the
refrigerator but should be eaten within that time. After that, the risk of food poisoning increases. Since bac-
teria usually does not change the taste or smell of food, it is hard to tell whether a food is dangerous to eat.
The best rule of thumb is - if in doubt, throw it out.
Uncooked foods, such as cold salads or sandwiches, should also be eaten or refrigerated promptly. The
goal is to minimize the time a food is in the "danger zone" - between 40 and 140 F (4 and 60 C) - when bac-
teria can quickly multiply.
Reheat pre-cooked food on the stove, in the oven or in the microwave until the internal temperature
reaches 165 F (74 C). Slow cookers and chafing dishes aren't recommended for reheating food because they
do not get hot enough to kill bacteria.
When preparing food, keep raw meat, poultry, fish and shellfish away from other foods. This prevents cross-contamination. Cook foods to a safe temperature. Prepare
ground beef to 160 F (71.1 C); steaks, roasts and chops, such as lamb, pork and veal, to at least 145 F (62.8 C). Cook chicken and turkey to 165 F (73.9 C). Make sure fish
and shellfish are cooked thoroughly.
Refrigerate foods promptly - within two hours of preparing them. If the room temperature is above 90 F (32.2 C), refrigerate perishable foods within one hour. Do not thaw
food at room temperature. The safest way to thaw food is to defrost it in the refrigerator.
Food poisoning symptoms, which can start within hours of eating contaminated food, often include nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Most often, food poisoning is mild and
resolves without treatment. However, sometimes people need to go to the hospital and they will not thank you for this later.
To help prevent food poisoning, always wash your hands well with warm, soapy water before and after handling or preparing food. Use hot, soapy water to wash utensils,
cutting boards and other surfaces. Antibacterial soaps are no more effective at killing germs than regular soap. Using antibacterial soap might even lead to the development
of bacteria that are resistant to the product's antimicrobial agents - making it harder to kill these germs in the future.
Christmas holiday gatherings should always be a time of good cheer and following
these simple rules will make sure your holiday gathering is memorable for the right
reasons. Food poisoning is the gift no one wants for Christmas.
