You thought I was going to say FOOD SAFETY FRIDAYYYYY didn’t you? Well, the holiday season is officially upon us!

Our friends over at the US Food & Drug Administration have created a list of do’s and don’ts for shopping and storage for you to keep in mind.

Guess what day it is?!?! It’s FOOD SAFETY FRIDAYYYYY! Today’s topic is proper cooking temperatures for meats!

Myth: “If it looks done then it’s done!” This is FALSE! Different types of meat requires different temperatures to ensure that it is cooked thoroughly.

Below are the set cooking temperature for each type of meat:

• 145°F for whole cuts of beef, pork, veal, and lamb (then allow the meat to rest for 3 minutes before carving or eating)
• 160°F for ground meats, such as beef and pork
• 165°F for all poultry, including ground chicken and turkey
• 165°F for leftovers and casseroles
• 145°F for fresh ham (raw)
• 145°F for seafood, or cook until flesh is opaque

Guess what day it is?!?! It’s FOOD SAFETY FRIDAYYYYY! I hope you didn’t miss us for long!

This week’s topic is dedicated to “Best By”, “Sell By” and “Use By” dates and the big question: What is the difference?

Huge shout-out to Western States Fire Protection for taking the time to build this amazing fire sprinkler riser system! They collaborated with The Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Co and JBR1 Industrial Services to build this system for us to train others, as well as train staff in house on sprinkler operations. This tool will be invaluable I'm showing the importance of fire sprinklers. We are amazed at how it turned out and cannot be more thankful to Joshua Garza and his team at Western States!

Food Safety Specialists Imani and Christina traveled to New Orleans the last few days to the Institute of Food Technology conference. They gathered more knowledge with food safety, and also networked with many others in their industry. They also we're able to meet some innovators in the industry as well as new technology that can aid their goal to maintain the safety of our students, staff, and visitors. Thank you both for striving to better our office, our University community, and yourselves!

ATTENTION:
THIS weekend from April 27-29th is tax-free weekend for emergency supplies! Stock up and be prepared for hurricane season that begins June 1st!

Examples of emergency supplies include: household batteries, axes, fuel containers, first aid kits, and flashlights.

You can even order online from a seller doing business in Texas and shipping and handling and delivery costs are factored into the sales prices.

The largest item that qualifies would be portable generators that are less than $3,000.

Another great item that is especially great for those who live in multi-story homes or buildings is emergency ladders (must be less than $300).

All info provided above courtesy of the Emergency Management Association of Texas.

For more information on items see the Texas comptroller’s website: https://comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/publications/98-1017.php?fbclid=IwAR14-7nypd-97Sz8-nyWXanmfxd1fm90TrvKnZAh_hsRi90TWxxTN-VY8lc

Friday the 2019 CERT class finished with a "disaster" drill. Tornado damage was simulated to a building complete with injured victims. CERT graduates performed extremely well under realistic conditions and pressure! After the drill, we enjoyed some yummy cupcakes (thanks Ginger!) and took a group photo! We want to extend a special thanks to our volunteer victims for their participation in the drill! We also want to thank our instructors and those that assisted during the class! We can't wait for the next class!
