Food Safety

Follow these food safety tips from AVA on storing cooked food to reduce the risk of food poisoning from contaminated cooked food:

  • All cooked food should be refrigerated or frozen within 2 hours after cooking.
  • Store cooked food in a clean, shallow container.
  • Use shallow containers and leave sufficient air space around the food to promote rapid and even cooling. Cooked food stored in large, deep containers remain warm for a longer time. Dangerous bacteria may grow in this warm spot which can lead to food poisoning if consumed.
  • When freezing cooked food, make sure they are wrapped tightly.
  • Keep your refrigerator uncluttered so that air can circulate and cool food properly.
  • Do not refreeze frozen food that have been thawed.
  • As a general rule, do not keep cooked food for more than 4 days.
