Health Tip: Store Refrigerated Food Safely

(HealthDay News) -- Refrigeration can help keep food safe from germs and prevent food-borne illnesses.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests these refrigeration tips:

  • Marinate food in the refrigerator instead of at room temperature. Bacteria can multiply rapidly at room temperature.
  • Never reuse marinating liquid unless you bring it to a rapid boil first to kill any germs.
  • Clean the refrigerator often and wipe spills immediately to reduce the growth of bacteria.
  • Prevent drips from thawing meat that can allow germs from one food to spread to another.
  • Cover foods in the refrigerator.
  • Check leftovers daily for spoilage.
  • Store eggs in the carton in the refrigerator itself rather than on the door, where the temperature is warmer.
  • Always check expiration dates.
  • If food looks at all questionable or is past its expiration date, throw it out.
