Having a Safe Picnic
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     A picnic is one of the most American things there is. But in the summer it is also one of the most common places to get food poisoning. The heat can make food dangerous to eat. Everyone can have a safe and fun picnic if a few simple tips are followed.
 
2     Make sure you have coolers to keep food like meats and salads in. Foods with mayonnaise in them can become dangerous very quickly during the summer. Put ice in the cooler to keep the food cool. The food should not get warmer than forty degrees.
 
3     If you are driving to a picnic, don't put the cooler in the trunk. It can get very hot back there very quickly. Put the cooler in the car where the air conditioner can help keep it cold.
 
4     If you are taking drinks, use one cooler for drinks and one for the food. Opening and closing the cooler a lot makes it hard to keep the food cold. A cooler with drinks will get opened a lot.
 
5     Put meats on the bottom of the cooler. This way they won't drip on anything else. Try to pack the cooler as full as you can. A full cooler stays colder than one that is half full.
