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.
