Basting Sauce Safety Tip
When brushing poultry, meats or fish with sauce during grilling, be sure to discard any unused sauce. Then, serve the grilled food with fresh sauce to ensure that no bacteria from the raw meat contaminates the cooked meat.
Keeping it Safe
Always wash hands after handling raw meat. Never place cooked food on the same platter that the raw food was placed on. Use clean plates for cooked meats. Discard any leftover barbecue sauce that has been in contact with raw meat, fish or poultry.
