By Mhownai - June 15, 2018

Making ends meet with a busy schedule is a tough job for me as a mother, I need to ensure that Edmund's health is my number one priority because we all know that health is wealth.

One thing that my mom taught me is to store is baby bottles, utensils to avoid bacterias but then I found out that storing your food inside your refrigerator may not be as safe as you thought it would be.

Did you know that when you store your food improperly this can lead to foodborne illnesses like Listeriosis?

Listeriosis is caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. It is a serious infection that can be very dangerous to a pregnant woman, newborn children and even elderly. People who suffer from this can experience fever, muscle aches, nausea, diarrhea.

Fear not, I listed three (3) simple steps to ensure that your food is safe while sitting in your fridge waiting for it to be consumed

1. Consume your foods immediately

Check the use-by date or best before the date on your perishable goods because after the recommended date, the quality of the food will go down and the safety will be lessened as well.

2. Regularly check and clean your refrigerator

Bacteria develop when a specific area is unsanitized so to prevent bacteria on your food, you should clean your refrigerator thoroughly, don't forget to wipe the walls and shelves with hot water and mild detergent and rinse afterward.

Don't forget to throw your spoiled foods because this can also be a source of bacteria.

Your raw produce like meat, poultry, and fish should be kept away from your cooked meals. Keep them at the secured place to avoid drippings it is also recommended to use a tight container.

3. Check the temperature

The recommended temperature is at 40°F (4°C) or below and your freezer at 0°F (-18°C).

If the temperature is lowered that the recommended 4℃ the bacteria will slowly grow thus, as the temperature rises, the bacteria may grow faster and can result to spoilage, wastage and food poisoning.

Refrigerator is one of the essentials in our kitchen, gives us cold water and ensures the safety of our food to keep us away from foodborne illnesses.
