How To Know If The Food In Your Refrigerator Is Safe
Honestly, it is pretty important to insure all the food you store in your refrigerator or out is safe at all times to eat. I never worried too much about it, usually doing the ‘sniff test’ with my super-sensitive nose was how I measured if the food was still good.
After nursing my husband and youngest son for almost a year (that’s 12 months!) back to digestive health after food poisoning, and hearing that another relative was positively diagnosed with Ecoli I have paid much more attention to all the food safety rules, etc. (see links below).
All your questions are answered at a very thorough, trustworth, and informative website from National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC).
