holidays bring menu changes

Often, holiday menu changes include the addition of a whole turkey. Here are some tips to keep your guests safe & reduce your risk of foodborne illness:

  1. Allow Time & Space: for larger proteins to thaw under refrigeration 41°F. 
  2. Cook Properly: Turkeys should cook to 165°F
  3. Proper HoldingHot Holding: place in a hot holding unit that can maintain the temperature 135° F. Cold Holding: Cool quickly 135°F to 70°F within two hours and 70°F to 41°F.
  4. Reheat: When reheating, bring to 165°F within 2 hours.


Active managerial control is the food service industry's responsibility for developing and implementing food safety management systems to prevent, eliminate or reduce the occurrence of foodborne illness risk factors. 

Take the policies and knowledge off paper and make food safety an action.
