The National Food Standards Agency (FSA) has released advice on summer food safety, as part of national Food Safety Week.
Higher temperatures mean a higher risk of food poisoning if food is not prepared and handled properly so the FSA is encouraging people to think hard about hygiene, particularly when preparing or eating food outdoors.
Councillor Mike Hallam, cabinet member for environment at Northampton Borough Council, said: "Barbecues and picnics are staples of British summers but many people put themselves at risk of illness by failing to plan ahead or undercooking food. This simple advice from the Food Standards Agency should help everyone make the most of the summer, whatever the weather. More »
"There's a common misconception that burgers are like steaks and can be served with a pink centre, however that simply isn't true. There is three times as much bacteria in a rare burger compared to a well-cooked one, so don't risk it. Burgers, sausages and poultry all need to be cooked until they are piping hot.
"The FSA have some great advice about how to keep picnic food cool until it's time to eat too."

Northamptonshire Police have launched a public consultation regarding proposals for the governance of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service to transfer from the Fire Authority which currently sits in Northamptonshire County Council, to the Police and Crime Commissioner, who would therefore become the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
"The government wants our emergency services to work much more collaboratively and has recently changed the law to allow this to happen. We already do this really well in Northamptonshire but there is scope for this to increase and for our fire and police services to work more closely together to keep our communities safe. More »
We want to ensure as many people who live and work in Northamptonshire have their say and tell us what benefits and concerns they may have. We have produced a leaflet (attached) and a short animated film to describe the proposal in a young person friendly format. To view the short video:https://vimeo.com/222176903
We have created an online survey to capture people's views, which can be accessed at www.northantsfireproposals.co.uk (a postal survey and easy read version are also available). The survey closes on Tuesday 1st August 2017."

Can people please take extra care over the summer months as there have been a number of reports of burglaries and attempted burglaries over the last few weeks.
In the good weather people leave doors and windows open allowing opportunistic thefts and coming up to school holidays there will be people heading off on holiday.
If you are going away ensure that any alarms are switched on and let your neighbours know that you will be away so they can be alert to any suspicious behaviour.
