BENNINGTON >> While many football lovers can be found stuffing their face with chicken wings, pizza and beer this Sunday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) urges viewers to stay food safe, especially when hosting a large crowd.

In an effort to avoid a foodborne illness, the USDA's Food and Inspection Service put together a list of reminders when preparing and serving food for the Super Bowl, stated in a press release from the Food Safety Education Staff.
