Cooking Up Tummy Aches for Thanksgiving?

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

The table will be set … Family and friends gathered round … All of them ready to dive into the feast set before them.

Simple mistakes, though, can leave some guests feeling more than overstuffed this Thanksgiving.  They can leave them sick.

Foodborne illness hits one in every six Americans and sends 128-thousand to the hospital each year and claims thousands of lives.  That’s why it’s so important to take precautions as you are preparing that annual Thanksgiving feast.

Nutrition experts with the University of Oklahoma College of Allied Health warn that you may unwittingly cook up a dose of bacteria along with your favorite recipes if you aren’t careful.
