Fridges and freezers are generally regarded as a kitchen essential to keep our food fresh and edible, but because of these preservation methods, it isnt always too clear when the food inside has become dangerous.
As a general rule, follow best before dates and note how long a product can be frozen past that date many households end up keeping meat frozen for years with drastic consequences. Some microbes can continue to develop several degrees below freezing. Ideally a home freezer should be set around -18C.
In the fridge, always keep raw meat on the bottom shelf in case in case blood drips onto food below it. Storing food in plastic bags instead of sealed containers can drastically speed up the rate of decay. Regularly clear out your fridge of any unwanted, seldom used items to avoid rotting.
