How can meat be safely prepared?

  • Always keep raw meat separate from cooked or ready-to-eat foods to avoid contamination.
  • Do not use the same chopping board or the same knife for raw meat and other foods.
  • Do not handle both raw and cooked foods without washing your hands in between and do not place cooked meat back on the same plate or surface it was on before cooking.
  • Do not use raw or soft-boiled eggs in food preparations that will not be heat treated or cooked.
  • After handling raw meat, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Wash and disinfect all surfaces and utensils that have been in contact with raw meat.
