Health Tip: Keeping Home-Delivered Food Safe

(HealthDay News) --Whether you have a new baby, a sick family member or are simply ordering take-out, you are probably having food delivered to you at home.

Foodsafety.gov suggests how to keep delivered meals safe:

  • Refrigerate delivered food at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below if you don't eat it immediately.

  • If you don't think you'll eat all the food at once, divide it into portions and refrigerate or freeze what you don't plan to eat now.

  • Remove any stuffing from whole cooked poultry before refrigerating.

  • Foods delivered cold should be eaten within 2 hours, or refrigerated or frozen.
