Food Safety for 4th of July

4th of July is right around the corner which means cookouts, picnics and an increase in food-borne illnesses. I was shocked to read the stats on illnesses related to food as I didn't realize that so many people are affected each year. I was recently sent some info from and I thought it was worth sharing with all of you especially with one of the biggest holidays of summer coming up in just a week!!

*Incidents of food poisoning surge over the summer months because bacteria multiply faster when it's warm

*Americans spend $400 million on beef alone for July 4th barbecues 

*USDA research shows that 1 out of every 4 hamburgers turns brown before it has reached a safe internal temperature 

*New FDA research done in collaboration with USDA shows that only 23% of Americans who own a food thermometer actually use it when grilling hamburgers (guilty!) 

*48 million Americans will get sick from foodborne illness this year, resulting in roughly 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths 

Want to avoid these serious public health threats this year? Just listen to our Founding Fathers below!!!
