Heads Up on the Dangers of Microwaving Improperly

There are warnings out there saying that when you microwave your dinners, be sure to thoroughly cook your frozen chicken dinners.

By not properly heating up the frozen entree's, you may be leaving cold or frozen pockets in the food.  That can lead to the survival of bad bacteria through the cooking process.  Not to mention that microwaves tend to heat food unevenly.

This after there have been 32 cases across 12 states where folks got sick from salmonella poisoning.  Last fall many got sick when Banquet pot pies made by ConAgra Foods were linked to a salmonella outbreak and frozen pizzas made by General Mills were tied to an E. coli outbreak. Both items were recalled.

Don't presume frozen foods are pre-cooked.  Beware, be smart folks!
