Because tailgate parties are an all-day food grilling and feast, there is an increased risk of foodborne illness. Cooking outdoors presents a food safety challenge. Not not only does bacteria multiply faster in warmer temperatures, but preparing food outdoors makes safe food handling more challenging. Every good tailgate party starts with a good game plan - that should include food safety.
Summer's almost over and it's time to plan for one last long weekend party. But remember, it's still warm - so that presents increased food safety dangers. Savor the end of summer with good food and friends - and not a foodborne illness.
A food recall occurs when there is reason to believe that a food may cause consumers to become ill. Get the latest food recall alerts from the FDA.
