Power Outage Food Safety

When Kentucky is slammed with winter weather, you may lose power for a period of time. Once the power returns, you may question whether your food is still safe to eat.  

Generally, frozen food in a full refrigerator freezer or chest freezer will keep for about two days if the power goes out and you do not open the door. It is important to note if the freezer is only half full, the food will only keep for one day without power. Refrigerated food will keep about four to six hours with no power. Opening the refrigerator or freezer doors lessens the time the food will safely keep.
