Holiday safety

-A A +A

The New Mexico Poison and Drug Information Center (NMPDIC) recommends the following holiday tips to protect our family, friends and neighbors from a potential poisoning:
Food Preparation
and Alcohol
• Wash hands well with warm water and soap before and after food preparation, especially raw meat/eggs
• Wash utensils, containers, counter tops and cutting boards well before and after food preparation.
• Use separate cutting boards for meat products.
• Cook all meats to the recommended internal temperature.
• Refrigerate all perishable items no more than two hours after a meal.
• Avoid storing raw meat above prepared food as contaminated fluid may drip or seep.  
• Keep all alcoholic beverages out of the reach of children and beware of unfinished alcoholic beverages—as little as 3 oz. of hard liquor can be fatal to a child weighing 25 pounds.
Holiday decorations
• Angel Hair is made up of spun glass which can severely irritate the eyes and mouth, causing a lot of pain.
• Snow spray can cause severe damage if sprayed directly into eye.
• Do not ingest the liquid in snow globes as harmful bacteria can accumulate.
