How do I prevent toxoplasmosis infection?

Toxoplasmosis-prevention

The toxoplasmosis parasite is commonly present in cattle, poultry, and many domestic animals without any harmful effects; however, it continues to live in raw meat after slaughter until the meat is cooked, dried, or frozen for a prolonged period. The two major causes of human toxoplasmosis infection in the U.S. are the consumption of raw or undercooked meat, and contact with the feces of the domestic cat.
Infopedia
To prevent infection, be certain to fully cook your fresh meat, and wash your hands thoroughly after changing the litter box.
