Refrigerate foods to maintain quality as well as to keep them safe. Some bacteria grow and multiply, although very slowly, at refrigerated temperatures. There is a limit to the time various foods will stay fresh and safe in a refrigerator. Food kept continuously frozen at 0 degrees F will always be safe but the quality suffers with lengthy freezer storage. Food is properly refrigerated at a temperature range between 35-40 degrees F or 2-6 C!
