Dru Banks, Nutrition and Wellness Educator is interviewed by host Richard Hentschel about Food Safety for the Holidays. Dru discusses handling food safely including making sure foods are served at appropriate temperatures to prevent food spoilage that could create food borne illness. Using a good food thermometer is essential to determine the doneness of the dish. Dru also addresses preparing the turkey in a safe manner. If there are concerns on preparing the turkey, most turkey producers offer a hot line as well as a USDA hotline.
