As you get older, you might eat out more often with the convenience of having someone prepare meals for you. When you do go out, you should remember that food safety is just as important as it is at home.
This video offers a few tips to help you be safe when you dine out so that you are not the victim of foodborne illnesses. Hot food should always be served piping hot and foods should always be cooked to the right temperatures. Make sure that you visually inspect your food and the cleanliness of the restaurant before eating so that you know you are not compromising your health with each bite.
