Nothing says summer like the smoky flavor of foods cooked on a grill. Make sure to clean your grill and tools before cooking. When grilling, use a meat thermometer and cook meats to the recommended temperature to kill germs. Place cooked meats on a clean plate.

Each year, 48 million people or 1 in 6 Americans gets sick from foodborne diseases. During the summer it’s even more important to handle foods safely. Warmer weather is ideal for outdoor picnics and barbecues, but also provides a perfect environment for bacteria and other germs in food to multiply rapidly and cause illness. http://1.usa.gov/1ldk7l0
