Don’t Bring Old Food into the New Year
The stockings are no longer hung by the chimney with care and St. Nicolas has already been here. Are the remnants of your holiday dinner in the fridge starting to scare?
Knowing the shelf life of your leftovers is crucial to protect against food poisoning. Before you go in for another serving of green bean casserole or holiday ham, educate yourself on how long your leftovers are safe. Visit www.homefoodsafety.org for a downloadable Refrigerator Calculator that lists how long it is safe to keep leftovers from casseroles to cakes and pies in the fridge.
Remember, when in doubt, throw it out!
