Keep Dairy Products Safe to Eat

Be sure to keep your milk and dairy products safe to eat.
  • Pick up milk and other perishable foods last at the grocery store.
  • Transport milk in a cooler with ice if you are driving a distance.
  • Store milk in the main section of your refrigerator, not in the door where the temperature is warmer.
  • Be sure your refrigerator is set at 40 F.
  • In general, milk kept cold will remain safe to drink for one week after the sell-by date.
