As the weather gets warmer, you may start thinking of planning a picnic.  Here are a few simple rules to assure that your food remains safe to eat:

  • Take only the amount of food to be eaten to avoid having leftovers.
  • Pack the perishable foods in a cooler with ice and freezer packs and keep your cooler in a shady spot.
  • Moist disposable towelettes are great for cleaning your hands.
