Went to a pot luck outdoor party this weekend. The temperature outside was 98 degrees. I was shocked at what people brought and had no regard for keeping the food safe. Not one had anything on ice. Cheese and cold cuts shriveled in minutes, pooling oil. Fruit salads can form listeria if not kept cold especially cantaloupe. Salads made with mayo...I ate nothing. I may have been a cop out but I brought a tub of red licorice (which, surprisingly was a huge hit) and a big bowl of assorted individual snack bags of chips.
Please, give food safety some thought when the temperatures rise. Everyone will thank you! BB🌷
