Health Tip: Fire Up the Grill

Clean it well before using

(HealthDay News) -- Yes, a grill can reach very hot temperatures. But bad food-safety practices can still make you sick.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these grill preparation suggestions:

  • Always scrub a grill with hot, soapy water before use, whether the grill is a public one or your own.
  • Wash your hands before, during and after grilling.
  • If you're grilling on the go, pack some hand sanitizer or moist towelettes.
