Dish up safety while preparing food

title

Por Lisa Braxton

These days, food and lifestyle magazines and websites are filled with recipes for an all-time favorite comfort food–soup. There’s nothing like a hot, hearty bowl of chicken noodle, tomato basil, or any number of other kinds of soup to warm us up and fill us up on a crisp, fall day.

But as soup is prepared, precautions should be taken. NFPA’s Scald Prevention Safety Tips sheet tells us that prepackaged microwavable soups are a frequent cause of scald burn injuries–especially noodle soups–because they can easily tip over, pouring hot liquid and noodles on the person.

If you’re preparing prepackaged soups, choose ones that come in containers that have a wide base, or to avoid the possibility of a spill, pour soup into a traditional bowl after heating.

If an accident does occur, treat the burn right away. Cool the burn with cool water for three to five minutes. Cover with a clean, dry cloth. Get medical help if needed. More scald prevention safety tips and NFPA’s other safety tips sheets are available on the website.
