Centers for Disease Control and Prevention сообщаютthat outbreaks of diseases due to bacteria causing food poisoning occur most often in November and December. Many of these are associated with regular holiday foods such as turkey and roast beef.

"Foodborne Diseases no joke, ”says Lisa Yakas, senior project manager at NSF International. The organization develops medical standards and certifications for food, water and consumer products.

Here's how to protect yourself and your family:

1. Store leftover Thanksgiving food in the fridge as soon as possible.

Bacterial growth in cooked foods increases at room temperature. Food should not be left outside the refrigerator for more than two hours.

2. Separate leftovers

When you remove the leftovers, take the time to separate them and pack them in small containers, preferably airtight.

Food in the fridge won't go bad during 3-4 days, and in the freezer - 3-4 months.

Remember to label food when you put it in the refrigerator or freezer. Labels will help you keep track of its expiration date, as it’s hard to remember how long products are stored.

5. Warm up the rest correctly

Proper storage of food debris will not help you maintain health if you do not warm them properly.

Whether you are cooking for the first time or warming it up, keep the temperature mark at least 165ºF (74 ºС).

CDC recommends heating all residues to at least 165ºF before use.
