Food hygiene in the home

Avoid food poisoning at home

To avoid food poisoning at home you need to make sure that the food you make is safe to eat.

It is very important to prepare food safely to help stop harmful bacteria from spreading and growing.

Cooking food properly at the correct temperature will make sure that any harmful bacteria are killed. Eating food that is not properly cooked could make you ill.

Keeping your kitchen clean is essential to keep food safe, otherwise bacteria can grow and spread.

The NHS choices website offers practical and helpful advice on 10 ways to prevent food poisoning.
