Called the optimal timing of food storage in the fridge

Scientists have figured out how long the food in the refrigerator will remain safe, reports The Daily Mail.

So, ham, raw meat and poultry can be stored at a relatively low temperature for two days, and sausages – three, a side of bacon – a week, but, for example, smoked salmon calm will last up to two weeks.

The fruit will be from two days to five (more dense bones through the week), vegetables – up to four days, the lettuce should not be stored more than three days.

Milk for 4-5 days, soft cheese 2-3 days after opening, cheese and eggs – a week.

As you know, stale products can dwell with different dangerous bacteria. For example, Listeria, which settles in yesterday’s salads, spoiled soft cheeses and raw milk.

In the box for fresh vegetables and fruits can be used to detect E. coli. In stale meat, especially if it is long under plastic film, breeds, causing intestinal infection is the bacterium Campylobacter.

Earlier scientists from the UK found that the largest number of bacteria is of the order of 8000 per square centimeter – is hiding in the compartment for vegetables and salad. To protect yourself from bacteria, experts recommend to wash the vegetables before you put them in the fridge. Which, by the way, you should at least once a month and clean it with hot soapy water.
