Company Picnics and Business Insurance in California

Category: Our Blog

Are
you considering having a company picnic or cook-out this summer? This may be a
good way to foster an environment of team work and show your employees how much
you appreciate the jobs they perform for your company. Before scheduling your
company picnic, you may want to check with your business insurance in California agent to make sure you have the
coverage you need for any accidents or mishaps that might occur at a company
picnic or cook-out.

 

Grilling
the meat you serve at your company picnic correctly is important to avoid
food-related illnesses. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
recommends grilling raw beef, pork, lamb and veal steaks, chops and roasts to
an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Should the meats be ground, the USDA
recommends an internal temperature of 160 degrees F, as well as 165 degrees F
for poultry products.

 

The
USDA advises that meats be kept hot, at 140 degrees F, until served.
Additionally, when taking cooked meat off the grill, it is important to place
it on a clean platter.

 

Placing
the cooked meat on the same platter that held raw meat may contaminate the
cooked food by spreading bacteria. In hot weather, the USDA advises that meat
not be left out for more than one hour. It may be wise to place leftover meats
at your picnic in a cooler within one hour of serving.

 

Having
the right financial protection for your company is another wise move. Why not
contact your business insurance in California agent to conduct a review of
your policies?
