Thanksgiving has turkey. And, it seems, the Fourth of July
has hot dogs. Many a grill today will feature the plump links of meat that are
eventually slid into the side of a bun, often getting smothered in ketchup,
mustard, and chopped onions.
We'll eat enough hot dogs today to stretch from Washington,
DC to Los Angeles five times, according
to Bloomberg Businessweek. But the article notes Americans' love affair
with the hot dog may be coming to an end. Perhaps it's a more health-conscious
lifestyle, the skyrocketing cost of beef, or a younger generation that would
rather eat a taco or sushi than scarf down a humble hot dog.
Whatever the case may be at your Fourth of July celebration,
federal health officials remind us that we need to be careful with the food
that's left over. It can only stay outside for about two hours. On days when
the temperature reaches 90° F
or above, food can only stay outside the refrigerator for an hour. And, they
note, leftovers heated-up in the microwave should be cooked until all parts of
the food are at 165° F. The Department of Health and Human Services has some tips on how to make sure
your microwave accomplishes that.
