The most important tool in the kitchen
For many, the holidays are a time for gathering and enjoying family and friends. And what better way to do that than around a good meal?
Meredith Coruthers, a food safety expert with the USDA says if you’re preparing a meal at home this holiday season, a meat thermometer is the most important tool to have in the kitchen.
She says if any questions about food safety come up during food prep, consumers can reach out to the Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline
