Keeping your food safe while its in the fridge



Daily routine and hustle in our busy lives, from doing the chores, going to work, and running errands, it is important to regularly check if the foods at home are stored properly, May it be outside or inside your fridge. Thinking if all of the foods are stored properly may be the last thing on your mind at the end of a long day.


Sure, grocery shopping, planning, and cooking meals are hard but neglecting the food sitting inside your fridge is not a good idea, especially since improper food storage can result to germs and viruses to spread, which may lead to food-borne illnesses. Also, its a waste of money too.


Fortunately, it is possible to make your food last longer while preserving the quality of it through different storage techniques. This will help ensure the safety of the food you serve during meals to make sure your family is eating healthy.

Here are three things to consider to keep your food safe its in the fridge:


  • When in doubt, throw it out. Do not taste a food if you ever find yourself in a situation where you are not sure if it is spoiled or not. Consuming even just a small amount of a contaminated food can cause serious illness to you and your family. 

Make sure to throw away any expired food inside your fridge to avoid any harmful bacteria and viruses to grow. Similarly, foods should be thrown out if left for more than four hours in the temperature danger zone, a temperature range of 40 °F and 140 °F where food-borne bacteria grow most rapidly.

  • Separate raw food from cooked food.  Make sure to store raw foods at the bottom of the fridge using sealed containers to avoid any spillage. Doing this will help avoid the juices from raw food—which can contain harmful bacteria—from contaminating cooked food that could make you and your family sick.

Also make sure that cooked foods that were stored in the fridge are reheated properly before consumption to avoid food-borne illnesses.  

  • Store leftover food properly.  Handling leftover foods properly is essential to avoiding and reducing the risks of food-borne illnesses. Before putting them at the fridge, first make sure that the food is cooked at the right temperature to ensure its safety. 

It is also important to take note that while some leftovers can be stored in the fridge, others must be placed in the freezer. This is especially important if you want to keep leftover foods for a few more days before consumption.
