Health Tip: Prevent Food Contamination

-- Storing edibles in the refrigerator may help prevent food poisoning, but it doesn't eliminate the possibility.

Foodsafety.gov suggests how to keep refrigerated foods safe:

  • Do not overpack your fridge. Cold air must be allowed to circulate to chill food properly.
  • Keep your fridge between 32 ˚F and 40 ˚F
  • Refrigerate or freeze perishable foods within two hours during winter, or within one hour during summer.
