Tip: Are you in the danger zone?

Did you know that the bacteria that cause food poisoning multiply quickest in the “Danger Zone” between 40˚ and 140˚ Fahrenheit?

Keep foods at safe temperatures. Hold cold foods at 40°F or below. Keep hot foods at 140°F or above. Foods are no longer safe to eat when they have been in the danger zone between 40-140°F for more than 2 hours (1 hour if the temperature was above 90°F).
