Food Safety

On Monday night we had quite a storm in the Denver area! Lots of hail and damaging winds and widespread power outages in some areas. I have been receiving some calls today from people whose power is just now back on and they are wondering if the food in their refrigerator is safe to eat. Here is a great resource about keeping food safe during a power outage:

Remember though, "When in doubt, throw it out". It can be financially painful to have to throw out all of the food in your refrigerator, but getting food poisoning and the ensuing medical bills is worse.


  1. Thank you for the information! I will keep this information around so I have it the next time my power goes out.

  2. I will keep this information for the next time our fridge dies while we are on vacation... thanks :)
