Richard Hentschel, host of Green Side Up, talks with Dru Banks about holiday food safety. About 76 million people get sick each year from food. Dru says so often that a food borne pathogen will not make everyone at the family gathering or party, but easily can cause illness in the young, elderly or those who are immune compromised. Planning ahead means more than just figuring out what foods will be cooked, but how prepared foods will be handled after the meal is finished. Dru offers lots of ways to handle the meal presentation that will be safe and how we should keep leftovers.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
