|Description:||Pictured here in this kitchen setting was a colander setting atop a kitchen sink’s countertop, which contained a number of newly-purchased, just washed produce products including two orange bell peppers, a green bell pepper, two tomatoes, and some lettuce. Other groceries could be seen in the background, all of which would be prepared in a clean sink preparation area of this kitchen.|
Some sink area safety tips offered by the Centers for Disease Control include:
- Thoroughly wash hands prior to food preparation, or eating.
- Clean cutting boards, knives, and countertops to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria.
- Learn if your drinking water is safe. If you use a private well, have the water tested for contaminants.
