Gentlemen, Start Your Grills!

Outdoor grilling ranks high among customers' favorite themed special events. But as summer temperatures heat up, so does the risk of foodborne illness. Some of the biggest grilling blunders, according to a recent survey by the American Dietetic Association and the ConAgra Foods Foundation, include not using meat thermometers to test for doneness, sharing utensils among different raw meats leading to crosscontamination, and leaving food out without refrigeration.
