Many of us buy meat and freeze it at home in an effort to save trips to the grocery store. While this method is convenient, it’s also potentially dangerous should you choose to thaw your meat at room temperature. Prevent bacteria from growing on defrosting meat by always thawing it safely in your refrigerator.*
When thawing meat, reduce the risk of contamination by keeping it in its original casing and setting it on a washable plate or in a separate bowl. After removing the meat from your fridge, be sure to disinfect the shelf it thawed on as an extra precaution.
