Purdue Extension and the Indiana Beef Council have developed a website – www.knowyourbeef.org – to help consumers store, select and cook meat safely.
"Know Your Beef" offers tips on how to prepare beef, including the importance of refrigerating meat at or below 40° F. and how to measure internal temperature while meat is cooking.
"Although the U.S. meat industry is the safest in the world, it is still up to the consumer to properly handle and prepare meat to avoid illness," says Jolena Waddell, co-developer of the website. "'Know Your Beef' includes simple safety tips to help keep your family healthy while enjoying a great product."
