** HOLIDAY COOKING TIP **
Holiday or Party Buffets*
A popular way to celebrate holidays or any party occasion is
to invite friends and family to a buffet. However, this type
of food service where foods are left out for long periods leave
the door open for uninvited guests -- bacteria that cause foodborne
illness. Festive times for giving and sharing should not include
sharing foodborne illness. Here are some tips from the USDA's
Meat and Poultry Hotline to help you have a SAFE holiday party.
Bacteria are everywhere but a few types especially like to crash
parties. Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridium perfringens and Listeria
monocytogenes frequent people's hands and steam tables. And unlike
microorganisms that cause food to spoil, harmful or pathogenic
bacteria cannot be smelled or tasted. Prevention is safe food
If illness occurs, however, contact a health professional and
describe the symptoms.
Staphylococcus ("staph") bacteria are found on our
skin, in infected cuts and pimples, and in our noses and throats.
They are spread by improper food handling. Prevention includes
washing hands and utensils before preparing and handling foods
and not letting prepared foods -- particularly cooked and cured
meats and cheese and meat salads -- sit at room temperature more
than two hours. Thorough cooking destroys "staph" bacteria
but staphylococcal enterotoxin is resistant to heat, refrigeration
"Perfringens" is called the "cafeteria germ"
because it may be found in foods served in quantity and left
for long periods of time on inadequately maintained steam tables
or at room temperature. Prevention is to divide large portions
of cooked foods such as beef, turkey, gravy, dressing, stews
and casseroles into smaller portions for serving and cooling.
Keep cooked foods hot or cold, not lukewarm.
Because Listeria bacteria multiply, although slowly, at refrigeration
temperatures, these bacteria can be found in cold foods typically
served on buffets. To avoid serving foods containing Listeria,
follow "keep refrigerated" label directions and carefully
observe "sell by" and "use by" dates on processed
products, and thoroughly reheat frozen or refrigerated processed
meat and poultry products before consumption.
Safe Food Handling
Always wash your hands before and after handling food. Keep your
kitchen, dishes and utensils clean also. Always serve food on
clean plates -- not those previously holding raw meat and poultry.
Otherwise, bacteria which may have been present in raw meat juices
can cross contaminate the food to be served.
If you are cooking foods ahead of time for your party be sure
to cook foods thoroughly to safe temperatures. Cook fresh roast
beef, veal, and lamb to at least 145 °F for medium rare and
160 °F for medium doneness. Bake whole poultry to 180 °F,
poultry breasts to 170 °F. Ground turkey and poultry should
be cooked to 165 °F. All other meat, fish and ground red
meats should be cooked to 160 °F.
Use Shallow Containers
Divide cooked foods into shallow containers to store in the refrigerator
or freezer until serving. This encourages rapid, even cooling.
Reheat hot foods to 165 °F. Arrange and serve food on several
small platters rather than on one large platter. Keep the rest
of the food hot in the oven (set at 200 - 250 °F) or cold
in the refrigerator until serving time. This way foods will be
held at a safe temperature for a longer period of time. REPLACE
empty platters rather than adding fresh food to a dish that already
had food in it. Many people's hands may have been taking food
from the dish, which has also been sitting out at room temperature.
The Two-Hour Rule
Foods should not sit at room temperature for more than two hours.
Keep track of how long foods have been sitting on the buffet
table and discard anything there two hours or more.
Keep Hot Foods HOT And Cold Foods COLD
Hot foods should be held at 140 °F or warmer. On the buffet
table you can keep hot foods hot with chafing dishes, slow cookers,
and warming trays. Cold foods should be held at 40 °F or
colder. Keep foods cold by nesting dishes in bowls of ice. Otherwise,
use small serving trays and replace them.
