You can't be too careful

From eNews, January 22, 2004

Food may be "finger-lickin'" good, but keep those licked fingers out of the food you're preparing. And, if like all good cooks, you taste as you go along, use a clean spoon every time. The University of Minnesota Extension Service offers these tips on preventing food contamination while you cook.

For more tips on safe food handling, see or call Info-U, the University of Minnesota's prerecorded household-tip service, at 612-624-2200 or 1-800-525-8636.
