Online Food Safety Resource: Ask Karen
Monday, September 21st, 2009

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service now offers an online resource called "Ask Karen" that allows consumers to research food safety questions 24/7. In a nutshell, "Ask Karen" is a knowledge base that contains information about preventing foodborne illness, safe food handling and storage, and safe preparation of meat, poultry, and egg products.

The service includes a list of common food safety questions such as:

  • How long can I keep meat in the refrigerator? 
  • How long is meat or poultry safe to use after the sell-by date?
  • Is food safe after the date expires?
  • How can I keep food safe outdoors?
  • Is food safe if left out overnight?
  • How do you keep food safe on a picnic?
  • How do you avoid cross-contamination when grilling?
  • Is it safe to refreeze food that has thawed?
  • How long can you keep dairy products?
  • Where can I get information about the JBS Swift Beef Company recall?
  • Is the E coli O157:H7 toxin killed through cooking? 
  • What are the symptoms of E. coli O157:H7 illness?
  • Where can consumers find information on recalls of food products?

And much more…
