Food Safety Tip
When the Power Goes Out . . .
Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as
possible to maintain the cold temperature.
The refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if it is
unopened. A full freezer will keep the temperature
for approximately 48 hours (24 hours if it is half full)
 and the door remains closed.
