Cross Contamination


How to prevent Cross Contamination

When prepping your food before cooking, you might put your food on a table, counter, or cutting board together. You may not realize that this can cause cross contamination to occur. To avoid this, there are a couple of things you can do.

You can separate everything into groups, especially the meat. Meat has more bacteria in it than the other food groups. Which is why you need to keep raw meat separated from your other food. Cross contamination can also occur using the same knife to cut meat and vegetables without cleaning them in between uses.
