It's barbecue season and one in four people will get sick from contaminated food this summer, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control. Every year 76 million people suffer from food born illnesses (5,000 of which result in death) which could have been avoided through proper food handling. "Food can easily become contaminated with bacteria and parasites when handled improperly," said Albertson's Nutrition Specialist Micheline Hansen, R.D. "Whether you're barbecuing or even picnicking at the park, beach or on a boat there are precautions that should be taken to ensure that the food you eat is safe."
