Keep food poisoning away from tailgate parties

By Randy LaBauve at
BATON ROUGE— Fall has arrived and so have football tailgate parties. But the festive atmosphere can quickly turn somber if tailgaters get sick from food poisoning.
“It’s important to correctly cook everything to prevent foodborne illnesses,” said Mandy Armentor, LSU AgCenter nutrition agent in Vermillion Parish. “It may seem obvious, but it’s really important.”
The four key rules for tailgate food safety are to separate, clean, cook and chill, Armentor said.
