Avoiding T-Giving Illnesses

With the arrival of Thanksgiving and the season for family feasts, the Illinois Department of Public Health is advising Illinoisans to take precautions to protect everyone from food-borne illnesses. Hosts can protect their guests by following basic food safety steps, including keeping hot foods hot, cold foods cold, and properly thawing frozen turkeys before roasting them. The agency advises not to leave foods at room temperature for more than two hours.
