It’s hurricane season. I’m not talking about my new favorite hockey team (although their season is almost here as well). Hurricane Bill is poised to travel towards the North East many folks might find themselves without power for a few days. One of this week’s food safety infosheets (teaser alert, another one is coming up) focuses on food safety during a power outage.
Food Safety Infosheet Highlights:
-Hurricanes and storms can cause power outages and lead to food safety concerns
