Column: Big green city

Safe Picnics

"There are always ants at a picnic." You can see ants and avoid them, but it's not possible to see, taste or smell dangerous bacteria that can cause illness if food is mishandled. Bacteria grow and multiply rapidly in the danger zone between 40 ºF and 140 ºF. Food transported without an adequate ice source or left out in the sun at a picnic won't stay safe for long. Family and friends who eat mishandled food may get the flu-like symptoms caused by foodborne illness.
