What in your fridge is Safe and What isn’t After a Power Outage

I live in the NW and we just had a powerful storm come through the area. Our house lost power yesterday (11/17/2015) around 11:30 AM. It came back on briefly from 1:30 to 1:45 AM. As I write this we still don’t have power.

The question is, then, what in my fridge do I need to throw out to avoid food poisoning? Fortunately the foodsafety.gov website has a list. If you’re like me and need to determine what’s safe and what isn’t, check out http://www.foodsafety.gov/keep/charts/refridg_food.html


PS: Power came back on around 4 PM!
