Can Your Refrigerator Kill You?
Find out how to keep nasty microbes from setting up shop in your fridge.
While bacteria lurk everywhere in the environment without causing illness, there's no reason make your fridge a bug-friendly incubator. It takes only three or four hours at temperatures above 40 degrees for bacteria to multiply to levels that can promote illness. Low-acid foods such as meat, eggs, and cooked veggies are the most susceptible. But no matter what food is in your icebox, the best way to keep them safe and avoid a nasty case of food poisoning is simple. Keep it cold and keep it clean.
