    Correct Answer
    C. Wash your hands with clean water
    Explanation
    After handling raw meat, it is important to wash your hands with clean water. This is necessary to remove any potential bacteria or contaminants that may have been transferred from the raw meat. Washing your hands thoroughly with clean water helps to prevent the spread of pathogens and maintain proper hygiene in the kitchen. Licking your fingers, starting to prepare dessert, or wiping your hands on a towel are not appropriate actions as they do not effectively remove the potential contaminants from handling raw meat.

      0˚Centigrade

    C. 8˚Farenheit
    Explanation
    Refrigeration slows down the growth of bacteria, and the maximum temperature recommended for refrigerated food is 8˚Fahrenheit. This low temperature inhibits bacterial growth and helps to preserve the quality and safety of the food. Keeping food at or below this temperature reduces the risk of foodborne illnesses caused by bacteria.

      Cut into the burger and if the inside is not pink it is safe to eat

    Correct Answer
    D. Cut into the burger and if the inside is not pink it is safe to eat
    Explanation
    If the inside of the burger is not pink, it indicates that the beef burger has been cooked thoroughly and is safe to eat. This is because the pink color in the center of the burger signifies that the meat is not cooked properly and may contain harmful bacteria. By cutting into the burger and checking the color of the inside, one can ensure that the burger is cooked to a safe temperature, reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses.
