Any store with a kitchen department will likely carry a variety food thermometers. Know what you're cooking and how you plan to cook it. Pick a thermometer (or two) that suits your needs.
Understand the food danger zone. Bacteria is all around us, in the air, in the soil and on surfaces. When bacteria grow in food before we consume it, we can become quite ill. Not only will some bacteria make us ill, but some bacteria produce toxins that remain even after cooking!
This FEMA video explains the upcoming national test of the Emergency Alert System.
Next Wednesday, November 9, 2012 at 2:00 pm Eastern, we will be conducting our first nationwide test of the emergency alert system. You know the one, where that annoying tone buzzes, the screen goes striped and a voice says, "This is a test of the Emergency Alert System. This is only a test." Except this time, the test will be live and nationwide.
