Food Safety Checklist

Do you always reheat leftovers to at least 165 degrees?

Do you eat leftovers within three days?

Do you dispose of refrigerated baby food after two days?

Do you make sure to not reuse a bottle or cup (with breastmilk or formula) that has been offered to your baby? Saliva can enter, and even with refrigeration there may be bacterial growth.

Do you always thaw meats and poultry in a microwave or under cool water? Are you careful to never thaw at room temperature?

Do you throw out any food that has been contaminated by leaking packages and spills?
