Heart Healthy: Health Tip: Preparing Leftovers
Source: HealthDay

(HealthDay News) -- Taking food home from a restaurant or storing the excess from last night's dinner isn't worth it if the food makes you sick.

The Foodsafety.gov website offers these guidelines for safe preparation of leftovers:

  • Keep leftovers in shallow storage containers.
  • If freezing, do so within two hours of cooking.
  • Eat all refrigerated leftovers within four days, or throw them out.
  • Eat frozen leftovers within four months.
  • Make sure all leftovers are thoroughly reheated before eating.
