How Long Does It Take Food To Spoil?


We have all been guilty once or twice of leaving food out too long or forgetting about the dinner leftovers in your fridge. It’s too easy for food to get pushed to the back of your freezer or pantry and left for months to come. This is especially true with a big family or household and lots of hands involved in the grocery shopping. Too often, there’s gray area on how long food, like meats, eggs, or starches can be stored.
