  • Easter egg food safety tips

     With Easter upon us, many of us will be coloring, decorating and hunting eggs. If you plan to eat those eggs, remember these tips to keep yourself and your loved ones from developing a food-borne illness.

    - Make sure you use only food-grade dyes for coloring. It’s safe to use commercial egg dyes, liquid food coloring or fruit-drink powders.

    - Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before and after handling raw eggs or cooked eggs.

    - Do not keep eggs out of the refrigerator for hunting or decorating longer than two hours.
