San Joaquin County’s Public Health Services is warning people about the dangers of undercooked poultry and improper food handling that can cause a gastrointestinal disease called campylobacteriosis.
People should also guard against homemade Mexican-style cheese, which is often sold at flea markets. Don’t allow fruits and vegetables to come in contact with a knife or cutting board that has also been used for raw poultry or other meat, according to Public Health.
People should carefully clean all cutting boards, countertops and utensils with soap and hot water after preparing raw poultry or meat, wash hands after preparing food and refrigerate poultry, meat and dairy products.
