Make Sure Food Is Safe

Frozen or refrigerated foods warmed above 40 degrees for more than two hours may not be safe to eat. Discard most food that has contacted floodwater.
  • Examine food carefully after a flood.
  • Contamination may occur if floodwaters have covered, dripped on or seeped into the food. Some foods may be protected by their containers.
  • If you have any doubt about the safety of a food, throwing it out always is better than risking disease
