Is Your Food Safe to Eat After a Power Outage?

When you lose power and don’t have a home generator in Columbus , what should you do with the food in your refrigerator and freezer? The answer depends on the temperature of your fridge and freezer and how long the power was out. Watch this video to learn more about food safety after a power outage.

Food in your fridge should be discarded after four hours without power, while food in your freezer may last for longer. If you talk to a licensed electrician about installing a home generator before storms hit, you can rely on that backup power to keep your food safe, even if the electricity is out for an extended period of time.
