Be Safe This Thanksgiving And Watch Out For These Hazards

  • by

Nobody wants to ruin their Thanksgiving festivities with a trip to the emergency room. That’s why you should watch out for these common hazards of the holiday season.

Don’t cut yourself carving up the turkey: use a carving fork to keep your hands out of danger. Be careful about burns and fire: don’t leave the oven or stove on if you have to leave the house and don’t deep fry a frozen turkey. Salmonella can be an issue if you don’t fully cook your turkey: it should be at least 165° F before it’s done. Heading out to see friends or family: drive safe, folks.
