Free Food Safety Printables

I know we all check the temperature of our turkeys at Thanksgiving... what about the rest of the year?

This post was prompted by the loss of a 4 year old boy to e-coli.  He was the son of a friend of my husband's.  Something as simple as an undercooked hamburger changed a family forever; He fought for his life for 3 1/2 months and just lost the battle last week.

I decided to hang something in my kitchen as a reminder to always use a meat thermometer.  Here are some free printables in case you'd like to do the same.  You can hang it in a frame, put some magnets on it and post it to the fridge, or tape it to the inside of a cabinet.

I am a vegetarian but I regularly cook meat for my family.  Since I am not able to taste the meat, it is a huge fear of mine that I would one day serve them something that has turned or is undercooked.  I think having the meat thermometer handy should put some of those fears to rest.
Here is a link to the USDA guidelines for meat temperatures if you are interested in reading more about food safety.

Be blessed and eat safe,
Jamie

  3. This is so timely. My husband just asked me to print him a list of the temps! The ones you created are so much better then a copy and paste from the website. LOL!

  11. All things considered, let it be realized this is not a piece that you just can utilize at whatever point you wish to however there is a requirement for you to comprehend this is an absolute necessity. Meaning, you need to make utilization of it every time that you are cooking your poultry, meat, and so on. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/03/undercooked-as-meat.html
