  2. Always wash your hands before and after touching raw meat. Wash your hands in warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds or with an alcohol-based disinfectant.
    If dishes or utensils have come into contact with raw meat. Do not reuse them until you have washed them thoroughly.
  3. Use a cutting board for fruit and vegetables and another for meat.
    Change the cloth every day. Do not use a sponge as it is more difficult to prevent the growth of bacteria there.
  4. Sanitize counters, cutting boards and utensils with a mild bleach solution (5 ml bleach in 750 ml water) before and after preparing food. Let the solution work for a few moments, then rinse with clean water and allow to air dry or use clean cloths.
