Sanitizing Thermometers During Service

Q - Is wiping off a thin-tipped thermometer with a sanitation cloth considered safe when probing raw meats on the grill to determine when it is medium rare?

A- No, that does not meet code requirements. If you are probing raw animal products, you will need to wash, rinse, and sanitize rather than using a wiping cloth to control cross-contamination.
