USDA Food Safety Tips for Areas Affected by Snow Storms
Posted: February 12, 2014
Important points for preparing for a power outage include keeping frozen water in plastic containers available if the power goes out and having coolers available to transfer refrigerated foods along with the frozen ice blocks. It is important to maintain perishable foods at a temperature of 40 degrees F or lower. Frozen foods that defrost can still be used provided their temperature does not exceed 40 degrees.
