Avoid Food Poisoning Around the Campfire this Summer

The midst of summer is upon us and during this time of year, many Illinois residents and families choose to enjoy the long, hot days and nights outside, gathered around campfires and backyard fire pits. Often, these outdoor fires are used to cook hot dogs, shish kabobs, and other foods like marshmallows for s'mores. Sitting around the campfire eating a freshly charred dinner is a great way to make warm summer memories with family and friends.

It can also be a great way to contract dangerous bacteria if you are not careful. Processed meats like hot dogs and summer sausages can harbor Listeria among other types of dangerous bacteria. Chicken, which you might eat on a skewer with peppers and onions cooked over the fire, can harbor Salmonella, and the fresh side salad can also be home to bacteria that can cause you to suffer from food poisoning. With this information in mind, make smart choices about food safety this summer to reduce your chance of suffering from food poisoning.
