3 Summer Food Safety Tips from the
Middletown Health Department 

Beach Cooler
  • Keep cold food cold, at or below 40 °F. Place food in coolers or in shallow containers nestled in ice. BAC (harmful bacteria) grows most rapidly between 40 °F and 140 °F, doubling in number in as little as 20 minutes! This range of temperatures is often called the "Danger Zone." 
  • Keep hot food hot, at or above 140 °F. Place cooked food in chafing dishes, preheated steam tables, warming trays, and/or slow cookers.
  • Don't leave food out for more than one hour if the temperature is above 90 degrees.

Check out the Fight BAC website for more summer food safety tips!
