Gary D'Aquilla, Mayor ATTEST: Cathy McCurley City Clerk Presenting Our Best Wishes Please accept our thanks and bes+ wishes for a happy holiday seasor . merry Christmas! Natchez Supply, Inc. Ann H. Davis, MSU Extension Wilkinson County Coordinator/Agent Every year at this time, the MSU Extension Office receives numerous calls concerning safe handling of holiday food, holiday meal preparation, and storing leftovers. Parties, family dinners, and other gatherings where food is served are all part of the holiday cheer, but the mer- riment can change to mis- ery if food makes you or others ill. According to the Food and Drug Administration Consumer Website, typi- cal symptoms of food borne illness are vomiting, diar- rhea and flu-like symp- toms which can start any- where from hours to days after contaminated food or drinks are consumed. The symptoms are not long- lasting in healthy people, but foodborne illness can be severe and even life- threatening to those at risk (elderly, infants, pregnant women, and those with suppressed immune sys- tems). Food borne illnesses can be the result of any stage from food handling to storage. The first rule of safe food preparation in the home is to keep everything clean - washing hands before and after handling any food; washing food-contact surfaces (cutting boards, dishes, countertops) with hot, soapy water before go- ing to the next item; rins- ing fruits and vegetables thoroughly under cool run- ning water with a produce brush; and not rinsing raw meat and poultry before cooking. Washing meat and poultry makes it more like- ly for bacteria to spread to areas around sinks and countertops. Don't allow cross-con- tamination (spreading bacteria from one food to another). Keep raw eggs, meat, poultry, seafood and their juices away from foods that won't be cooked. Merry Christmas from the Editor & Staff Use different cutting boards for foods that will be cooked and another for raw fruits and vegetables. In addition, be sure to use different utensils for cooked and raw foods when preparing and serving. Never put cooked or raw foods on unwashed plates, especially on plates that held raw meats.
