August 24, 2000 Outages Causing Food Spoilage
When in doubt, throw it out. That's the message from the St. Louis Health Department. Thousands of people face a refrigerator full of spoiled food because of the power outages. The Health Department guidelines say frozen food will remain frozen for about three days if the freezer door stays closed. All perishable items, such as eggs, dairy products or meat should be eaten or thrown out within 24 hours.
