Tips for food safety
Don't leave food out for more than two hours.
If you leave food out for more than 2 hours, throw it away. Germs that make food go bad can grow if you don't keep food at the right temperature. Store food in the fridge or freezer or in the oven/stove.
When you buy hot cooked food, eat it within two hours or keep it heating in the oven at 165 degrees Fahrenheit/74 degrees Celsius or higher. That will keep germs from growing.
What are the safety rules for cold food?
Cold food should also be eaten within two hours or put in the fridge or freezer for later.
How should I reheat a meal?
Follow these rules for meals you buy hot or cold.
Be careful with leftovers. Will you get home within two hours after your meal? If not, leave the leftovers behind.
Your car can get very warm inside. Germs can grow fast. It is best to take your food home right away. That way, your leftovers can go safely into the fridge.
A good rule to follow is: when in doubt, throw it out!
