KELSEY WATKINS PRACTICING her lines in the comedy "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" to be performed at the OHS auditorium along with "The Christmas Carol," Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8 and 9. ' Extension report Roselyn Biermaier Regional Extension Educator PURCHASING IRRADIATED BEEF There are many places that you can now purchase irradiated beef. It's been two years since irradiated beef first appeared on the market. It began in a few grocery stores, but in this short time it is now in fast food chains, restaurants and home delivery trucks. Burgers are as American as apple pie. One fast food chain has advertised the millions they have sold. At home, grilling happens year round instead of just in the summertime. Along with eating the burgers, Americans are also becoming more food safety conscious. So, some people also ask if tbod irradiation is safe. The Food and Drug Administration has evaluated irradiation safety for over forty years. Beef is not the only food that is irradiated. In 1963 the FDA approved irradiation of wheat to disinfect it from insects. In 1965 it was approved for white potatoes to extend shelf life. In the meat and I process cause a health concern?" Numerous sources of research say that the answer is, "No." The amount and type of radiation is precisely controlled. That is why, so far, you can only purchase irradiated beef patties. The exact weight, size and shape of the patty are calculated in the formula for the amount of radiation. The example that I like to use is the "amount of energy and type of radiation'used to irradiate food is enough to kill food borne bacteria, but it does not make the food radioactive, just as luggage does not become radioactive after passing through a security checkpoint at the airport." (Christine M. Bruhea, Ph.D., University of California Division of Agriculture & Natural Resources.) Ah, but how does it taste? The irradiated burgers that I have prepared, or eaten away from home had no flavor difference to me. It is required that irradiated foods be labeled so, I knew I was eating irradiated beef. Research also shows that "'nutritional changes are less or close to those that happen when food is cooked or frozen The difference is so small that it has no effect on the American diet." (Food Irradiation, Kansas State University Agricultural Station and Coop Extension Service.) Now, to cook the burgers.3hey still need to be cooked thoroughly."Get poultry industry, irradiation of pork in the habit of using a food was approvedin 1985;poul in 1990 thermometer.

Could you imagine the astronauts getting sick?! (Frequently Asked Questions about Food Irradiation. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, 2000.) A commonly asked question is often the other side of the safety coin. That question is, "Does the radiation thermometer is a great Christmas present for Dad, Morn or Grandma. Also, thaw frozen burgers in the refrigerator. Be careful not to cross contaminate. Use a clean plate to take the cooked burgers off the grill. The last step is to enjoy!
