Health Tip: Safely Store Food in the Fridge

View the Fat-Fighting Foods Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- Storing foods properly inside your refrigerator can help prevent juices from seeping out and contaminating other foods.

The FoodSafety.gov website offers this food-storage advice:

  • Store raw meat, seafood and poultry inside a plastic or glass container, or a plastic bag.
  • Freeze raw meat, seafood or poultry that you won't be using in the next couple of days.
  • Store eggs in their original cartons.
  • Place eggs inside the main part of the refrigerator, rather than inside the door.
