Take care cooking holiday turkey

first_imgThanksgiving is right around the corner. Plates will soon be filled with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie — and a side of salmonella?Each year, an estimated 48 million people in the U.S. get sick from foodborne diseases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Norovirus and salmonella pathogens account for 69 percent of those illnesses, according to the CDC.This holiday season, health officials and food safety experts are offering advice to keep foodborne illness off of the Thanksgiving menu.The food with the most potential to cause illness is the main attraction — the turkey.Frozen turkeys should never be left out on the counter to thaw. Meat or poultry left in the “danger zone” between 40 degrees and 140 degrees foster the perfect environment for bacteria to rapidly multiply, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.One safe way to thaw a turkey is in the refrigerator, which takes about 24 hours for every 5 pounds. With that method, a 20-pound turkey would take about four days to thaw, said Sandra Brown, food safety and nutrition faculty at Washington State University Clark County Extension.Another method is to submerge the frozen turkey, enclosed in a leak-proof bag, in a sink of cold water. The water will need to be changed every 30 minutes to ensure the turkey doesn’t rise above 40 degrees, Brown said.“You can’t put it in there in the morning and go off to work,” she said. “Eventually, that water is going to get warm.”last_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Three days after appearing in his third straight Pro Bowl, Patrick Peterson made his first appearance in the Waste Management Phoenix Open Annexus Pro-Am.His helmet, uniform and cleats were replaced by a hat, white shirt, grey khaki pants and golf shoes.The Cardinals’ cornerback certainly looked the part, but could he play the part at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium course?“Actually I haven’t had much time to play this offseason…still shaking the cobwebs off,” Peterson said of his game. “I’m OK. I’m an acceptable golfer. I can score when I can, but I’m not a professional, yet.” He hopes a contract extension is given, too. – / 8 In the game Sunday, he picked off San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers.“We had a lot of fun. There was a lot of excitement. The intensity level was definitely high,” Peterson said. “It’s always good to go to the Pro Bowl to meet some new guys; meet the guys who you play against and kind of see them in a different light outside of competing against each other when it really matters. It was fun going out there to Hawaii and putting up a great performance. Although we came up short, I still had a great time.”Peterson played for Deion Sanders’ team, which lost 22-21 to Jerry Rice’s team, one that included fellow Cardinals John Abraham, Justin Bethel and Larry Fitzgerald.“They didn’t get on me too bad (about losing),” Peterson said of his teammates. “It was just a good, competitive game and that’s all everybody wanted. We just wanted to make sure that we played the game hard enough so we can keep the game going and keep it in Hawaii, hopefully.”Following his interception, Peterson, who wears No. 21, like Sanders, paid tribute by performing Sanders’ signature celebration dance.“Wearing that No. 21, it’s just something that, it’s given,” Peterson said. “It wasn’t spontaneous or anything like that; just something that’s given.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img Comments   Share   Yet, huh?Peterson, while he certainly loves to play, obviously is not ready to make golf a full-time gig. He has a job, manning the Cardinals’ secondary. It’s a job he hopes to hold for quite awhile.“I’m under contract for two more years, so I want to continue playing great football,” he said before teeing off. “Whenever (GM) Steve Keim and (team president) Michael Bidwill address me and my agent (about a contract extension), we’ll go from there.”Peterson is three years into his four-year rookie contract, which includes a fifth-year option for 2015 should the Cardinals choose to exercise it. The Cardinals may also choose to try to work out an extension with Peterson, locking up one of their core defensive players long-term.“I am eligible (for an extension this offseason),” he said. “Of course I would like an extension to stay here for a while, but it’s a business so we have to wait and see what happens.”Statistically speaking, Peterson had a down year in 2013. He finished with three interceptions—four fewer than the year before—and a career-year low 40 tackles.Peterson, however, was still ranked among the best defensive backs in the NFL and recognized as such by his peers, who voted him into the Pro Bowl for the second time as a cornerback and third time overall.
