Food Safety FYI

1. ¬†Ready to eat food is generally good for 7 days in the fridge from the time it’s prepared or opened.

2. Even though most oils are fine stored at room temp, if you add something to the oil (like herbs, garlic, or peppers), you should store in the fridge.

3. Foods most likely to become unsafe include milk and dairy, beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish, baked potatoes, tofu, sliced melons, cut tomatoes, cut leafy greens, eggs, shellfish, cooked rice, cooked beans, cooked vegetables, sprouts, seeds, and untreated oil mixtures.
