One of the mistakes that people make when they are refrigerating food products is that they assume that because it is in the refrigerator, it will not become rotten. Food also has a shelf life and while placing them on the refrigerator will prolong the number of days before they will rot, there will come a time when other factors will start to take over.
- Make sure that you transfer your milk from cartons to bottles because cartons will tend to store more bacteria.
- When you have leftover food, make sure that you place them in leak proof containers or wraps. Make sure also that they have cooled down before placing them on the refrigerator.
- Do not rewrap your fresh meat, poultry and fish because you might expose them to bacteria that way.
There are still other tips that you can follow for food refrigeration.
