While some restaurants are currently open for limited capacity or outdoor seating, they must follow food safety guidelines set by local health departments. You can also take some simple steps to have a nice dinner without taking home more than your leftovers.
Whether you are picking up food to eat at home or having it delivered, here is what you need to do to avoid getting sick from unsafe food practices.
If your favorite restaurant or take-out meal is too big to finish, place the leftovers in the refrigerator as soon as you finish eating or at most within two hours. If you won't be eating them within one to two days, it’s best to wrap them in freezer-safe packaging and place them in the freezer. You can then thaw them in the refrigerator or reheat in the oven.
Stay up to date with what matters most to you and your family.
