As the holidays are fast approaching many of us will be preparing turkey for dinner. Don’t forget safety. Over 80% of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving and many also prepare it for the Christmas meal as well. Cuts from carving turkey are one of the top five most common injuries on Thanksgiving.
Do’s and Don’ts when carving:
- Never cut toward yourself. One slip can cause a horrific injury.
- Place free hand on the opposite side you are carving toward.
- Don’t place your hand underneath the blade to catch the slice of meat.
- Keep all cutting knives sharp. A sharp knife requires less force to cut.
