The winter holidays usually bring celebrations that include a lot of food and drink. Upstate New York's Poison Center is cautioning residents against common hazards this time of the year.

“There is a simple method, keep cold food cold and hot food hot. If there a perishable ingredient where if they are left out over an extended period of time, some bacteria might develop,” said Livermore.
