A new Web site, offering tips on holiday food safety was launched last week though a combined effort of the USDA, the Food and Drug Administration and The Partnership for Food Safety Education.

This Web site includes information on purchasing, thawing, cooking methods and recipes for leftovers; a holiday planner with timeline and shopping lists and multiple menu options full of tested recipes. The site also includes kids' activities so they can be part of a "food safe" celebration.

For additional food safety tips, visit American Meat Institute.
