Health Tip: Avoid Food Poisoning From Seafood

Health Tip: Avoid Food Poisoning From Seafood

09/03/13

(HealthDay News) -- Seafood is a key part of a healthy diet, but it's important to follow food safety guidelines created specifically for seafood.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration offers these recommendations:

  • Keep all cooked seafood completely separate from raw seafood. The two types also should be kept apart in the store before you buy them.
  • Use soap and water to wash hands for at least 20 seconds before and after handling seafood.
  • Thoroughly wash all cutting boards, utensils or plates that touch raw seafood. Avoid using the same items for seafood that's been cooked.
  • Clean cutting boards in the dishwasher after each use.
  • Make sure seafood is promptly refrigerated or frozen immediately after purchase. Eat within two days if refrigerated.
