Can Your Refrigerator Kill You?
Find out how to keep nasty microbes from setting up shop in your fridge.
Foil, zip-top plastic bags, or glass containers all work fine when it comes to storing food. But it's fine to keep fresh meats, fish, and poultry in the original packaging and store in a shallow dish that will catch any drips. That avoids cross contamination.
And, unsightly as open cans look, the hazards are minimal say scientists. Keep cans covered (with plastic wrap or plastic lids) to prevent contamination from airborne bacteria. And make sure to use up canned leftovers in 24 hours.
