Grilling is a great way to make a delicious meal, especially during summer get-togethers and events. However, grilling carries a number of risks—from fire to food poisoning— that you must be aware of in order to keep your outing safe and enjoyable. To keep your family and friends safe while grilling, keep these suggestions in mind.
Each year, approximately 1 in 6 Americans get sick from food poisoning. It’s not uncommon to hear about food being recalled or a new foodborne illness outbreak daily. Most people recover without any long-lasting effects; however, those who are pregnant, the elderly or those with chronic conditions are more at risk for developing complications.
