USDA Puts Out Tips On Food Safety During An Outage

USDA Puts Out Tips On Food Safety During An Outage
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Severe storms can knock out electricity and cause food to spoil, but the U.S. Agriculture Department says there are some ways to cut food waste and guard against illness.

The agency's Food Safety and Inspection Service put out food safety recommendations for people in the Midwest and Great Plains who get hit with heavy rain, high winds, hail and tornadoes.

Among the suggestions: freeze water in one-quart bags or small containers and put them around food if the power goes out; keep the fridge at 40 degrees or lower and the freezer zero or colder; and put refrigerated food in coolers if the power will be out for more than four hours.

Other tips are available on the YouTube video called "Food Safety During Power Outages."
