Quick Answers

 

 

How can I safely prepare fruits and vegetables?


Because fruits and vegetables are often consumed raw or slightly cooked, it is important to follow basic food safety procedures when preparing them.
 

  • Keep fresh fruits and vegetables away from surfaces that have been in contact with raw meats. Thoroughly wash and sanitize any kitchen utensils or cutting boards that have touched raw meat.
  • Wash fresh produce under running water before preparing.
