Halloween is a holiday that often is celebrated by trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, and costume parties. Follow these simple steps from the San Bernardino County Public Health Department to have a fun and safe Halloween party. If juice or cider is served to children at Halloween parties, make sure it is pasteurized or otherwise treated to destroy harmful bacteria. Untreated juice or cider will have a label indicating that it was not pasteurized or otherwise treated. No matter how tempting, do not taste raw cookie dough or cake batter. “Scare” bacteria away by keeping all perishable foods chilled until serving time. These include finger sandwiches, cheese platters, fruit or tossed salads, cold pasta dishes with meat, poultry, or seafood, and cream pies or cakes with whipped cream and cream cheese frostings. Cold temperatures help keep most harmful bacteria from multiplying. Do not leave the food at room temperature for more than two hours.
