Florida Department of Health Encourages Kids To Be a Hero and ‘Spill The Water!’ To Fight Mosquitoes

Full Story

Tallahassee, Fla.—The Florida Department of Health is educating Florida’s youth on mosquito bite prevention and enlisting their help in the fight against mosquito-borne illnesses in a new campaign that encourages kids to “Spill the Water!”

With the holiday season fast approaching, Florida Health encourages all Floridians to keep food safe by practicing basic food safety measures while preparing meals.

A majority of the reported cases of foodborne illness are caused by bacteria or the toxins produced by bacteria. Bacteria can multiply extremely fast when food is kept at an unsafe temperature (above 41 and below 140 degrees Fahrenheit).
