Food Safety Tip of the Day

Be cool, chill out

Chill out refrigerator

Proper cold storage is essential to preventing potential illness-causing bacteria from growing. Cold foods should be kept at 40° F during transporting, storage, and serving. Cooked foods must be cooled to 40° F within 4 hours for safe storage. Use of a thermometer to check refrigerator and food temperatures is a must for monitoring cold foods.
