Generally, if food is still cold to touch (less than 5°C) it is safe to use. Use this list to check that the food you make is as safe as possible.
- Only open the fridge and freezer doors when absolutely necessary as this will keep the food and air temperature colder for longer
- If available, put bagged ice under food packages and trays stored in freezers and fridges if power failure lasts more than 1 hour
- Place an insulating blanket over cold or frozen food where possible
- Once cold or frozen food is no longer cold to touch (5°C or over) it can be kept and eaten for up to 4 hours and then it must be thrown away
