Bacteria can be spread throughout the kitchen and get onto hands, cutting boards, utensils, counter tops, and food. When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs, keep these foods and their juices away from ready-to-eat foods. Cross-contamination is how bacteria can be spread. Always start with a clean scene - wash hands with warm water and soap. Wash cutting boards, dishes, countertops, and utensils with hot soapy water.
