Stay Safe this Summer: Avoid Ice Cream Food Poisoning

Summer brings many different sensations. The warm wind pushing your hair aside, the tickling grass between your bare feet, the warmth of a setting sun against your back, and the various smells and tastes of summertime favorites like s'mores, grilled hot dogs, and ice cream all comfort us through these three months.

These same comfort foods can also cause us to suffer harm if they are contaminated with dangerous bacteria.
