"5"General Rules for Food Safety « Back

Food safety rules are based on scientific study as well as common sense. The following rules and important information will guide you to improved food safety and optimal food storage.

• Once you have heated, defrosted or thawed perishable foods, consume them.

• After opening canned food or commercially vacuum packed food, they can be vacuum packed again. Follow the instructions to refrigerate after opening and store re-vacuumed packages properly.

• Do not defrost foods in hot water or via other heat sources. It doesn’t matter whether they are vacuum packed or not.

• Do not consume foods if they are perishable and have been left out at room temperature for more than a few hours. This is especially important if they have been prepared with a thick sauce, in a vacuum package, or in a low oxygen environment.

• Spread vacuum packages evenly throughout the refrigerator or freezer to cool down food temperature quickly
