It is important to keep raw meat away from other food. Tips to avoid cross contamination:

  • Wash hands after handling raw
  • Wash and sanitize all food-contact surfaces that touch raw
  • Prepare raw meat in an area away from other
  • Use a separate cutting board for raw
  • Store raw meat below other foods in the refrigerator and
  • Store meat with a higher cooking temperature (like chicken) below meat with a lower cooking temperature (like fish).
