Community Health Works provides safety tips for food-borne illnesses

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – We’ve all probably had food poisoning at one point or another, and it isn’t fun.

Katie Smoak from Community Health Works joins 41NBC to talk about food-borne illnesses.

The CDC says 1 in 6 people get a food-borne illness each year.

Be sure to know where your food is coming from to stay safe.

Be careful when you cook poultry and eggs, because when they’re too raw, you have a higher chance of having bacteria in your body.

Also, wash your hands so you won’t transfer germs onto your food.
