Food Storage Guidelines
Food Storage Chart Shelf Life of Food  Refrigerator and Freezer Storage Chart

Food Storage Guidelines are important for your health.  You can help keep your refrigerated food from spoiling by following safe storage time limits.   When freezing food it helps to keep it safe indefinitely so it is not important if a date expires after food is frozen.  The recommended storage times are for quality only.  Storage times are from date of purchase unless specified on chart.

Storage does not improve the quality of any food, nor does the quality of a food decrease significantly during storage.  Be sure to store the food  properly and use within the recommended time frame.  Maintaining a foods quality depends on several factors:  the quality of the raw product; the procedures used processing; the way the food is stored; and the length of storage.  The recommended food storage guidelines  takes these factors into consideration.

Since bacteria frequently get into food through careless food handling, keep everything hands, refrigerator, freezer and storage containers clean.
