PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The Department of Health is reminding South Dakotans to follow simple safety tips this holiday season to keep unwelcome food-borne illnesses out of the festivities.

Bill Chalcraft is health protection administrator for the South Dakota Department of Health.

He says it's important to remember to thoroughly wash hands, clean cooking surfaces after dealing with raw meat and to store and heat foods at the correct temperatures.

Food-borne illnesses can cause diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Sometimes fluids are necessary to prevent dehydration.
