Food Safety Tip of the Day

Store it, don't ignore it.

Store it graphic - wiping refrigerator

There are many important steps to take to ensure your food or product is properly stored. All potentially hazardous, ready-to-eat food stored in refrigeration should be discarded if not used within seven days of preparation. All potentially hazardous, ready-to-eat food should be labeled with the date it should be sold, consumed or discarded. Discard any food that has passed its use-by date. Produce should not be washed prior to storage.
