FOOD POISONING DURING THE HOLIDAYS

 

Everyone is looking forward to having a great time and lots of good food at holiday parties. But, holiday foods have to be handled safely to prevent guests from getting sick. Foods made with meat, poultry or dairy products can be especially risky for food poisoning. Some tips for safely serving food is: hot foods can be kept hot in chafing dishes, roasters or slow cookers. Cold dishes can be kept on ice or in insulated containers. Another way to keep perishable foods safe is to put out small platters or bowls. Do not leave perishable foods out at room temperature for people to nibble on for more than 2 hours because that is an invitation for food poisoning-bacteria to grow. If perishable food is left out for more than 2 hours it should be discarded.

ILLINOIS CONSTRUCTION RULES

 

Illinois drivers are used to seeing construction zones during the spring, summer and fall. But there is still construction going on now. Construction zone signs are now regulatory. Which means the speed limit posted is the speed limit at all times. The foremen of the sights will remove the speed limit signs at the end of the day, but sometimes it must remain up for safety purposes. In the last 10 years, 60 percent of crashes in construction zone have been when no workers were present, along with 85 percent of the people injured or killed were not workers. If caught speeding in a construction zone, a citation will be issued which means an appearance in court and a minimum fine of $375. As of January 1, 2010 it will also be illegal to use a cell phone while driving in a construction zone. When traveling through work zone drivers are asked to stay focused, reduce their speed, and buckle up.
