Remember your food safety this Super Bowl Sunday!

If you are planning to host a Super Bowl party, you are going to need plenty of food! However, a recent announcement from USDA says your job as a watch party host does not end once the food is cooked or ordered.

In fact, it is important to remember a few food safety tips if you plan to eat while watching the big game.

“I feel like one of the big mistakes is leaving food out way too long,” USDA’s Meredith Carothers states. “Paying attention to the timing that food is out is super important.”

To avoid any food-related illnesses, she recommends putting out small amounts of food at a time and replenishing it frequently.
