Steamy outdoor temperatures and the sudden outbreak of flip flops, bathing suits and barbeque grills confirm summer has officially arrived in Oklahoma. Check here often for tips, stories and feature videos that will help you ensure the year’s hottest season is fun and safe.
Remember food safety when firing up the grilling
With the summer heating up, many Oklahomans may be heating up their grill, as well. Summer is typically a time of creating fun-filled memories and delicious meals. However, if the meal is not prepared properly, it could be a source of foodborne disease.
According to the USDA Food Safety & Inspection Service, foodborne illness peaks during the summer months, as harmful bacteria tend to grow faster in warmer, more humid weather.
