(DOES NOT FULLY MATCH AUDIO)

SEPTEMBER IS "NATIONAL FOOD SAFETY EDUCATION MONTH".  AND, THE AMERICAN MEAT INSTITUTE ENCOURAGES CONSUMERS TO BE PARTNERS IN ENSURING SAFE FOOD, BY TAKING STEPS TO PREPARE MEAT AND POULTRY SAFELY.  FOR EXAMPLE, STUDIES SHOW THAT ONLY ONE IN FIVE CONSUMERS USE A THERMOMETER, WHEN COOKING MEAT--AND, MOST OFTEN, THEY RELY ON THE COLOR OF THE MEAT, IN ORDER TO DETERMINE HOW DONE IT IS.  AN INSTANT-READ THERMOMETER CAN BE A GREAT FOOD-SAFETY WEAPON, IN THE KITCHEN--ESPECIALLY WHEN PREPARING HAMBURGERS AND TURKEY-BURGERS.  FEDERAL-GOVERNMENT DATA SHOW THAT MEAT- AND POULTRY-PRODUCTS ARE SAFER THAN EVER.  BUT, NO FRESH FOOD--WHETHER IT'S A BERRY OR A BURGER--CAN BE BACTERIA-FREE.  TO TEST YOUR "FOOD-SAFETY I-Q", VISIT "MEAT-SAFETY"-DOT-ORG; THAT'S "MEAT-SAFETY"-DOT-ORG.
