The study notes that the most common mistake made is not washing their hands long enough. The rest of them didn't last the proper time, or dried their hands with towels that were not clean.
According to the paper, very few of the participants rubbed their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds - deemed enough time to get the grime off - and nearly half didn't wet their hands with water pre-wash.
Government researchers watched over 380 people prepare food in six separate "test kitchen facilities" located in both urban Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area and the rural Smithfield, North Carolina. The USDA stressed that people use a food thermometer and properly cook their meat to its recommended safe internal temperatures. A prior study done in 2013 by Michigan State University found that only 5 percent of people washed their hands correctly.
The researchers observed that people who had watched the video were significantly more likely than the control group to use a meat thermometer properly while making their turkey burgers.
"There were many, many times in the course of the study that people had the opportunity to wash their hands - almost 1,200 opportunities", Rottenberg told NBC News. It is important to tell that the video, indeed, did not specifically showed good hand-washing techniques. The experts also realized that the participants only considered washing their hands after touching something that was contaminated - such as raw meat - three times of the instances.

So, how should you wash your hands? "By simply washing your hands properly, you can protect your family and prevent that bacteria from contaminating your food and key areas in your kitchen", Carmen Rottenberg, Acting Deputy Under Secretary for Food Safety at USDA, said in a statement.
After wetting the hands, close the water and softly apply soap to them.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends you wet your hands before lathering it with soap. The department also suggests people wash their hands for the full 20 seconds and dry them clean with a towel immediately after. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Continue with this process for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the "Happy Birthday" song from beginning to end twice. Then, put your hands under the clean water to remove the soap.
"Numerous" study participants also didn't dry their hands with a clean towel.
