The safety of stored food in your refrigerator and freezer is very important to your health. Your refrigerator temperature should be in a range between 34-40 degrees F. This is necessary to prevent bacteria growth on your food and prevent food borne illness.
Freezer temperatures should be at an operational range of zero degrees or below…-10 to -20 degrees is optimum for maintaining good food quality for longer periods of time. If you label frozen food items and maintain a rotation system, use items with the oldest date first.
Here at Digitalthermometers.net we recommend a refrigerator/freezer thermometer for every household. These relatively inexpensive thermometers are not just for commercial chefs, but are a great way for the average consumer to have piece of mind regarding food safety.
Has this ever happened to you? You loose power due to a storm and as the hours go by without power, you ask yourself: “is the food safe to eat or has it started to decay?”
Be safe…be sure by knowing the temperature inside of your refrigerator and freezer.
There are many thermometer types to select from including units for reading when you open the door to thermometers that will read without opening the door to units with alarms.
What an excellent way to have piece of mind for a very small cost.
