Have A Safe Halloween Party
While Halloween is meant to be a scary night we don't want it to be a horrific night of food poisoning. It is meant to be a fun night of goodies to eat, haunts to play and friends to be with . To prevent any frightening moments we don't want to happen and can be prevented.
Juice and Cider are often to served to children at Halloween parties. Be sure that they are pasteurized or treated to destroy harmful bacteria check label to ensure this.
While we love raw cookie dough it is better found in products like cookie dough ice cream etc... Be sure not to treat yourself to raw cookie dough or cake batter.
When preparing apples to bob make sure to wash them with cool running water and prepare the surface of each is washed off.
All perishable foods should be kept chilled til serving time. This will help scare away the deadly bacteria. Food such as finger sandwiches, cheese platters, fruit or tossed salads that contain pasta, meat, poultry or a dressing that is perishable. In addition don't forget those tasty treat of desserts such as cream pies, cakes with whip cream or cream cheese frosting should also be kept at cold temperatures to help keep most harmful bacteria from multiplying.
