Holiday Health: 4th of July

Updated: Wednesday, July 2 2014, 05:55 AM CDT
Keeping your family safe this 4th of July doesn't have to be complicated.
Most important: keep hot foods hot, and cold foods cold, to keep bacteria at bay.
If you are cooking meat, buy a kitchen or grilling thermometer and make sure the thickest part of the meat gets to at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
You should also be careful to keep raw meat and raw vegetables, like lettuce and tomatoes, separate.
You can find more cookout safety tips here.

When it comes to cooking out, make sure a grill is allowed.  Nashville and Davidson County regulations can be found here.Holiday Health: 4th of July
