    Ice chests should follow the same food-storage principles as refrigerators to ensure safety. Raw meats should never be stored above ready-to-eat (or -drink) foods/drinks. The hamburger in the diagram should be shown at the bottom of the ice chest even though it could mean that drinks are above them. Getting raw meat juices – even just small amounts – on the top of a soda can, for example, could make someone ill if the meat juices contain illness-causing bacteria. Cured meats (like hot dogs or salami) could be stored on top. Even better would be to have a separate ice chest for foods to be cooked. Otherwise, I like the diagram, as well as the idea for a hand-washing station!
