The “Sinatra” of Salmonella: Singing about Food Safety

We recently shared with you some of the highlights from The Nevada Food Safety Task Force meeting.  One of the speakers or better yet, singers that was in attendance was Dr. Carl Winter.  Dr. Winter led the audience with his humorous and educational food safety music parodies.

Here is his rendition of:  “Don’t Get Sicky Wit it.”
