Buying chicken

When shopping, Food shopping

  • Pick up perishable foods last.
  • Check packages for tears or broken seals and don't buy if it has been opened or damaged.
  • Take perishable food home immediately and refrigerate or freeze.
  • If travelling long distances, keep meat in an esky in the car.

There is also a handy full colour Food Safety Flyer available for download; print it off and stick it on the fridge!
