The holiday season has officially begun in Canada- this weekend is Thanksgiving!
It is particularly timely, especially since we are in the middle of the largest recall of tainted beef in Canadian history, to remind you of the importance of food safety. While you may not be more likely than anybody else to come into contact with food borne bacteria, folks who have a lowered immune system as the result of a blood cancer or the treatment of it can become more sick than the rest of us. Please make sure you review safe cooking and handling techniques to avoid illness this Thanksgiving.
Whether you are Canadian or not, it is never a bad time to take a step back and try to think of something you are thankful for- a supportive family, great friends, an understanding boss, or even just the time you get to spend with a beloved pet. I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving, and much more to be thankful for!
