Safe grilling guidelines

Grilling pork chops.

Safe food handling is always important, but grilling brings special challenges. Follow safe food handling guidelines by washing your hands before preparing food and keeping all utensils, dishes and work areas as clean as possible. It's important to thaw meat in the refrigerator and always use a food thermometer to check that meat and poultry have reached recommended temperatures.
