Janet Powell, a registered dietary technician at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge, has some tips for keeping your food safe so the only concern you have is the game's final score. Food-borne illness "Stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea, headaches and vomiting associated with food-borne illness may spoil your tailgate party if you aren't careful," Powell noted. "Food-borne illness can occur when food is improperly handled. Symptoms may occur as soon as a few hours or as long as a few days after you eat contaminated food." The bacteria that cause food-borne illness grow at temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, she said. Foods prepared for tailgate parties or picnics may fall within this so-called "danger zone" even when the weather is cool. Cleanliness is an essential part of tailgating, and it begins with food preparation. Powell has the following recommendations.
When in doubt, chill it," Powell cautioned. "When you marinate raw meat, fish or poultry, place it in a tightly sealed plastic container or use two resealable plastic bags, especially if you plan to transport it in a cooler," she added.
Or, they may purchase these foods in advance, refrigerate them until party time, and then reheat," Powell suggested.
And don't forget to dispose of your trash in a covered bin or trash receptacle," Powell advised. For the trip home, place your cooler in the air-conditioned part of the car. If the cooler still contains ice when you get home and the food is refrigerator-cool to the touch, your leftovers should be safe to eat. *** About the Author: Janet Powell is a registered dietary technician at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge.
