Lincoln County Health: Food Safety During Power Outages
Published on 07/23/2019 under News With the large number of power outages, it leads to questions on whether your food is safe to eat. We heard from Kristin Bath, a Public Health Educator with the Lincoln County Health Department regarding those recommendations. She says if the power is out for less than four hours, the food in your refrigerator and freezer should be safe to consume. After 4 hours, the USDA recommends discarding refrigerated perishable foods such as meat, poultry, fish eggs, and leftovers. A full freezer will actually hold a safe temperature for approximately 48 hours (a half full freezer will stay cold for around 24 hours.) Of course, you should minimize the number of times you open and close the doors and "When in doubt, throw it out." Bath also shared a link with additional resources online._____ Bath also gave a few reminders for those who turn to generators. Never use generators or any gas powered engines in your home to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Generators should be run at least 20 feet away from your home. Also make sure you have a working carbon monoxide detector with a battery powered back up.
