However, once the food is purchased, it is up to the consumer to handle and store the food properly to prevent spoilage, contamination and the development of harmful bacteria that can cause disease.

When shopping, check the “best before dates” on the packaging.

Buy only the amount of food you can eat during the recommended time.

Choose long-life items like tin cans first. Choose refrigerated food, cold cuts and frozen items just before going to the cash counter.

Always buy foods that are at the right temperature. For example, dairy counter foods should be cold and cooked foods such as roast chickens should be hot.

Once you have purchased the food, go straight home and store the cold perishable food in the fridge or freezer.

Bacteria multiply rapidly when they are in the danger zone between 4 ° C (40 ° F) and 60 ° C (140 ° F). So, in order to preserve the quality and safety of refrigerated foods, it is important to store them at a maximum temperature of 4 ° C (40 ° F).

Cooked food should never be left out of the refrigerator or oven for more than 2 hours. Low temperatures keep food fresh and prevent the growth of most bacteria.

However, even when food is stored at the correct temperature, the organisms responsible for food spoilage can continue to grow and multiply slowly.

There is therefore a limited time during which the food will keep its freshness and can be consumed without danger. It is a good idea to write the date of purchase or cooking on the containers. Make sure your pantry, refrigerator and freezer are clean.

Once opened, store foods in foil, plastic wrap, airtight plastic bags or containers to prevent them from drying out or becoming contaminated.

Unfortunately, you can’t smell, see or even taste the harmful bacteria and other contaminants that cause infections and food poisoning.
Remember, when in doubt, throw it away!

The storage times in the following tables are calculated from the date of purchase and only apply to foods handled properly.

FROZEN PURCHASED FOODS

When shopping, choose frozen foods right before you go to the checkout counter. Bring these foods straight home and store them in the freezer as soon as possible.

Place a thermometer in your freezer and often check that the temperature is -18 ° C (0 ° F).

For maximum safety, thaw these foods in the refrigerator. But if time is of the essence, thaw in a sink full of cold water, making sure to change the water every half hour. Or in the microwave according to the manufacturer’s instructions and cook immediately.

FOOD PURCHASED REFRIGERATED

Store food of parrot: Keep a thermometer in your refrigerator and often check that the temperature is below 4 ° C (40 ° F). Some bacteria can grow and multiply, albeit very slowly at this temperature. Then the food will stay fresh and safe for a limited time.

If you don’t plan to use them quickly, it’s best to put these foods in the freezer as soon as you buy them. Juices from raw meat, poultry and fish can contain bacteria.

Place the packages of these foods on trays to prevent the juices from dripping onto other foods.
