Power Outage: What You Need to Know

Fruits and Veggies

Some fruits and vegetables follow the same rule found in the previous slide: if they’ve been sitting at a temperature above 40ºF for more than two hours, you might need to toss them. This goes for pre-cut fruit and vegetables, cooked vegetables, tofu, potato salad, baked potatoes, opened vegetable juice, soups, casseroles and stews. But don’t worry — there are plenty of items you can save! You can keep fresh herbs and spices, mushrooms and uncut vegetables. You can also keep opened fruit juices, uncut fresh fruits, candied fruits and dried fruits.
