How do I keep my food safe at a picnic?

Picnic Safety Measures

Important cooking tips! Food poisoning is a real danger at outdoor picnics. Make sure to keep any food you plan on serving below 45 degrees or above 140 degrees for as long as you possibly can. Keep your salads (especially mayonnaise based salads) in the refrigerator until mealtime, and make sure that any grilled foods are fully cooked and served hot. If possible, keep your cold foods in a food storage cooler at all times, or replace in the cooler as soon as everyone has been served.
