Broadcaster Press 7 July 3, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Remember Food Safety During Summer Months PIERRE, S.D. – Keep the unwelcome guest of foodborne illness from making an appearance at family reunions or summer gatherings with some simple food safety tips. “While you enjoy all the summer festivities, don’t forget good food safety practices,” said Dr. Joshua Clayton, state epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “Wash your hands thoroughly, cook and store foods at proper temperatures, clean and sanitize work surfaces after preparing raw meat and poultry and don’t prepare food when you’re sick.” Symptoms of foodborne illness include mild or severe diarrhea, fever, vomiting and abdominal pain. Most people recover on their own without medication, but some need fluids to prevent dehydration. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates foodborne illness 1340 sickens 48 million Americans every year, resulting in 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths. For South Dakota this extrapolates to approximately 125,000 illnesses, 340 hospitalizations and eight deaths annually. In 2017, South Dakota reported the following foodborne illness cases: Salmonella (226), Campylobacter (395) and E. coli (91). That’s over 700 cases just last year. Clayton recommends the following safety tips for preparing and storing food: • Clean and sanitize. Wash hands, cutting boards, utensils and countertops. • Separate. Keep raw meat and poultry separate from ready-to-eat foods. • Cook foods to a safe temperature, checking with a food thermometer (145°F for whole meats, 160°F for ground meats, PIERRE, S.D. – The Western Governors’ Association released its report on workforce development today detailing steps states can take to address the skills gap.
