In the summer, foods can quickly reach the “Temperature Danger Zone” (the temperature between 40 degrees F and 140 degrees F where bacteria multiply rapidly), so it is more important than ever to handle food properly when purchasing, reports Extension Educator Carol Schwarz.
When shopping for raw and cooked foods in the summertime, be sure the store is displaying food at the proper temperature. Never select packages that are torn, leaking or have a lot of frost on them.
