Nutrition Q & A

My Electricity Went Out for Two Hours. Is the Food in the Refrigerator Safe to Eat?

The refrigerator will keep food safe for up to four hours if the door remains closed. A full freezer will keep food cold for 48 hours, while a freezer that is half full will keep food cold for 24 hours if the door remains unopened. 

During prolonged power outages, store refrigerated foods in dry ice or in a cooler with enough ice to keep the food at 40° Fahrenheit or less. Store frozen foods at a temperature of 0° or below.
