Cold Holding Temperatures
Food in cold holding must be maintained at or below 41ºF.
When dealing with groceries, leftovers, doggie bags, and party platters, use the 2-hour rule.
Avoid Cross Contamination
Raw meats and eggs should be stored on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator, away from leftovers and ready-to-eat foods, such as fruits and vegetables.
Always wash utensils and dishes after use with raw meat and eggs, and before use with other foods. Or, use separate equipment and utensils for each product. Wash your hands after handling raw meat or eggs.
